The event, held at Broome-Tioga Sports in Lisle, with all proceeds from the event going to benefit the Family Enrichment Network. And although the obstacles were though participants say supporting a good cause was worth it.

"I hope it's terrific. It looks like a load of fun. I'm sad I can't be out there running myself and I hope they're having a great time. Everybody's got a great attitude. I love the costumes people are in. The shirts are terrific. Look's like they're having fun," said Kelly Weiss, Director of Special Events.
