Maybe we should call it Chicago's Super Run/Walk! Mark your calendars for the 2014 Wacky Run which will have a "Superhero" theme. While we've sent invites out to Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Women, Iron Man and, of course, Superman (to name just a few), mere humans can still register while we await responses from these crusaders for good over evil.

Participants are encouraged to dress as their own caped (or non-caped) comic book and movie faves. Andfor the recordwe won't discriminate against anyone who wants to costume up as a "Supervillian" for this March run in Lincoln Park. Hey, we need someone to battle the superheroes along the course route and at the post-race party inside the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum!
