Crystal Lake Park, Urbana
Registration begins at 8 a.m.
The race ... running, walking, walking dogs, walking kids, pushing kids in strollers, pulling kids in wagons ... begins at 9 a.m.
It's about 1.5 miles, 3 miles if you're tough and you do two laps.
Free hot chocolate and bottled water.
Free ribbons to first 500 or so finishers.
