“This is your chance to escape another dreary winter’s day in Northern Illinois & Indiana. Join us for a 5k “cruise” through the residential streets of Park Forest,” says Race Director Judith Wallace. “Although we can guarantee some degree of ‘balm” we are not able to guarantee that there won’t be a freak storm which might plague this idyllic paradise and cover the streets of Park Forest with snow, sleet, slush or other conditions which may or may not be completely favorable for you! Cruise begins at 10:30 a.m.”

For more information, call Judith Wallace at 708-534-6090, or visit the club’s Web site at PFRPC.COM.
