Of interest … Guns N’ Hoses 5K Run/Walk

Excerpts from dnainfo.com:

The second annual Guns N’ Hoses 5K Run/Walk will return at 7:30 a.m. Saturday to the hilly streets of Beverly and will benefit the 100 Club of Chicago. 

The race begins and ends at Christ the King Parish, 9235 S. Hamilton Ave., and is being held in honor of the late Lt. Partrick Hannon of Beverly. The 23-year veteran of the Chicago Fire Department died Jan. 15, 2011 from a heart attack. He was found unresponsive in a firehouse in Bridgeport. 

Last year, the race was held in honor of the late Michael Flisk, an evidence technician for the Chicago Police Department who was shot and killed Nov. 26, 2010 by an armed man during evidence collection from a vehicle that had its stereo equipment stolen. 

It costs $40 for adults to run the race and $35 for students younger than 18. Registration can be completed on the day of the race for an extra $5 for adults. 

All finishers will receive a medal and participants will also be given a ┬╝-zip jacket. The race is timed with computer chips, and a breakfast will be held at the parish following the run. Already some 200 people have registered for the race that drew 232 runners last year.
