Dewey Dash has strong turnout

Race profit will pay for library improvement

ELBURN—Sunday’s Sixth Annual Dewey Dash in Elburn featured more participants than the event has had since its first year.

Two hundred and forty-one people crossed the finish line at Town & Country Public Library, sponsor of the 5K and one-mile run and walk.

Among them were the top finishers, Tyler Conklin, 7, of Maple Park, whose time for the mile was seven minutes, 48 seconds, and Dan Forde, 52, of Aurora, who finished the 5K in 19:33.

Unlike last year’s cold, rainy race day, Sunday was slightly cool and sunny for the Dewey Dash. The event’s turnout was the closest ever to that of the 2005 races, which featured 300 runners and walkers, library director Mary Lynn Alms said.

Although most of the participants were from Elburn and surrounding towns, some runners hailed from as far away as Round Lake and Schaumburg, Ill.

The Dewey Dash raised approximately $3,500 this year. The library will use the funds to buy two electronic bulletin boards to post programs and public announcements, Alms said.
