Cesar Rodney Half Marathon

3rd Annual Fighting Irish 5K
March 19, Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia
Stacy Antoniadis – 27:58 Racer’s Remarks: I ran this race 14 seconds faster than last year. The course isn't too bad either - some hills but nothing like Valley Forge Park. It's a great little race to start off the spring season with good raffle prizes, bagpipe music, and Starbucks coffee and scones at the finish. The racing field keeps getting bigger each year. Three years ago the first race started with a field of about 300; this year, the field grew to 701 finishers.
