The Alumni Run will be held Aug. 30 on the old cross country course behind Lyons Township High School South Campus. Participants are asked to arrive around 8:30 a.m. to register for the free race. Registration takes place near the finish line. The run will start at about 9 a.m. and festivities won’t be over until the last person crosses the finish line.

The Alumni Run gives cross country runners and community a chance to re-live the glory days. The race has transformed throughout the years. For the past five years, a few runners have kept this event going by hosting, planning and growing it every year.

This is a free fun run where everything is on the honor system. Everyone tracks their own time and the results get posted on the Facebook page. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow one is; it’s all about showing school pride and proving to oneself that one can still get through the 3.2 miles.

The Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/events/1451715618412845/
