Half-marathon raises money for Literacy Council


Light morning showers definitely did not keep runners away from hitting the pavement, for a little while at least.

Turn-out for the Literacy Council Half Marathon has grown from 170 to roughly 250 runners in just a year.   Plus, over the last decade the event has raised more than $60,000 for Rockford's Literacy Council.

The race is made up of mostly off-road, trail running in Winnebago County forest preserves.
