The Great 8Kers
We're here to build good "buzz" for The Great 8k and its 2nd year running! This is the Village of Matteson Community Center's annual 8-kilometer (4.97 miles) Run & Walk through the community of Matteson, Illinois. We inaugurated the race last year and it was great! There aren't too many 8k's that even exist--and, hey, how many of 'em are Great? :-) Chicago has one, supposedly around St. Patrick's Day, but it seems to get farther and farther away from St. Pat's every year! Not us, and The Great 8k. Nope! We're always in summer near the end of June. This year's race happens on Saturday, June 29th, and you are MORE THAN WELCOME to sign up, run, walk, volunteer, or spectate! We LOVE watchers and cheerers and everybody who brings a mouth with a smile... and a cheer!
Just click on "Find a Race" to your left--right now!--and scroll down 'til you see "The Great 8k-2013" listed, then click on it, and follow the directions as to how indeed to register for this event. You can do it today! And you can also contribute a little extra to this year's charity, the Ronald McDonald House.
Keep reading! Join in! Post a comment! Then run the race and post another comment! We LOVE runners and walkers and ALL "peeps" who show up, and ALL commentators besides!!!
