It Keeps You Running 

With 26 bands at this year's Ukrop's Monument 10K, the music is sure to take your mind off that nagging knee, or maybe just ease your fans' boredom by mile 6.2.

The big race starts Saturday at 8:30 a.m. and the First Market Mile Kid's Run kicks off at 8 a.m.

But if you're bent on driving, park east of Belvidere for best availability, either on the streets or in one of the lots.
