Mark Durno - Chili Bowl Classic 5k - February 2014


The Chili Bowl Classic is a great way to get into the VO2 Max groove. The race used to be held out in Westlake, then moved to Tremont. It always brings out a good crowd - this year there were close to 700 taking the plunge into the arctic air (18 degrees when the gun sounded) with wind and snow blowing around.


Its a FAST course for 2 miles, then you get to climb a nice long hill to bring you - and your lungs - back to reality. CTC was well represented, including Michelle, Tiffany, Heidi, Joe, Jason, Mark S., Mark D., Tim, & Sara - just to name a few. We took home our fair share of age group hardware too! The race concludes with chili and bloody mary's - the way it should! Race on.
