Journey to the End of the Night 2011 Recap

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Every year I worry about how Journey to the End of the Night is going to work out and every year it’s fantastic.  Once again I was a staff chaser — this time chasing people in a suit.  It wasn’t as bizarre as the gorilla, but runners rarely thought a dude in a suit would start chasing them.

I’d say my favorite moment was standing alone on the beach between checkpoint 2B and checkpoint 3 and chasing people across that big sandy expanse.

The starting line


Starting Runners: 749 (biggest Chicago Journey ever!)
Starting Chasers: 12 (4 on bikes)
Surviving Runners: 174
