700 Register for Crystal Lake Kiwanis Santa Run

At 9 AM sharp the Crystal Lake Kiwanis Santa Runners were off.  Click to enlarge any photo.

Friday there were 501 registered for the first Crystal Lake Kiwanis Santa Run.

All that pent up energy came running at me as I stood in the middle of the street.

At the 9 AM race start there were 701.

Time for another picture before I run to side of Williams Street.

Organized by Kiwanis to benefit groups that help kids in McHenry County, the 5k Run/1 mile walk benefited from mild weather.

As the thundering herd of Santas got closer, I stepped aside.

It was so mild, in fact, I saw one man cross the finish line with his Santa suit, hat and beard still in its original bag.

As I got out of the path of the runners, I got this shot of the Santa Run participants.
