The Villa Park Junior Women’s Club (VPJWC) held its ninth annual Trick or Trot 5K Run/Walk and Little Devil 1K Dash on Saturday, Oct. 29. Both races began and ended on the Illinois Prairie Path, near the Rugaard Gazebo. All participants were encouraged to wear Halloween costumes. Villa Park Village President Nick Cuzzone blew the horn to signal the start of the 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) run/walk at 9 a.m. The photo shows runners heading east at the beginning of the 5K race. This year’s event, which took place under blue skies, featured a record turnout, with more than 160 total participants. All proceeds from the event benefit the charities, organizations and families supported by the VPJWC.
