Hidden Gem to return Sept. 10 with familiar route highlighting Flossmoor’s neighborhoods

The Hidden Gem Half Marathon is fast-approaching, and it already is poised to be the biggest race field yet.

By early August, registration had passed 700 runners, with the 1,000-participant cap likely to be hit by the end of the month, according to Tom Dobrez, co-founder of Flossmoor’s Future and one of the organizers of the Hidden Gem.

The 13.1-mile run is to start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, in front of Infant Jesus of Prague School on Flossmoor Road and end in downtown Flossmoor . . .
