About The Bunny Wabbit Run
The Bunny Wabbit Run Half Marathon in Libertyville, Illinois is a great race to participate in. It takes place on 8 April, 2023 and offers an exciting course that winds through the scenic hills of Lake County. The route begins at Adler Park and follows the Des Plaines River Trail for seven miles before heading back into town and ending at Cook Memorial Park. Along the way runners will be treated to views of rolling hills, quaint townships, and even glimpses of Lake Michigan if they look hard enough.
The weather during this time of year is usually mild with temperatures ranging from 40-60 degrees Fahrenheit (4-15 Celsius). It can get quite windy as it is near the lake so runners should come prepared with layers for added warmth if needed. There are also occasional rain showers during this period so again make sure you come prepared – but don’t worry too much about it as it doesn’t always happen!
As far as crowds go there are usually a good number of spectators lining up along parts of the course cheering runners on which really helps to keep motivation levels high throughout the race! Of course while passing through residential areas people may not be out cheering since its early morning but you never know who might pop out with inspiring words or just a friendly wave.
One special thing about this half marathon is that all proceeds go towards various charities around Libertyville making it more than just another run – your participation can have an impact beyond yourself! Overall we highly recommend taking part in Bunny Wabbit Run Half Marathon if you’re looking for an enjoyable yet challenging event in beautiful Libertyville, Illinois on 8 April 2023!
