Southern Illinois 10K

April 2, 2011 was a great Spring morning for the running of the Southern Illinois 10K race.  This race is held in beautiful Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge located between Carbondale and Marion, Illinois in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  The route is familiar to many runners as it is the middle portion of the Fly with the Eagles Half Marathon course.  The course distance this year was just under 6.40 miles.
