Overall a good race and fun time:)

I will run this race next year, but I think a good addition for future races would be to have the band play, either before or after the race. Also I haven't seen any results posted. I didnt see my time when i ran through the finish and would love to know my time!

GHOST CHACE A GREAT TIME

I ran this race last year . well organized starts and finishes on the bank of Illinois river. Very scenic. Flat fast course, smooth streets well staffed. The "Ghost" is a national level runner. Fun to see some amazing runners perform. Funds go to IVC marching band. I recommend this as a great time for a great cause.
