D-Club Members Represent at Chicago Marathon

DePaul Athletics was well represented in the 32nd running of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 11. In a race that featured nearly 33,419 finishers, more than 20 of DePaul's D-Club members completed the test of endurance. In addition to participants, numerous members of the track & field team served as volunteers, headed by DePaul's track coach Pat Savage who served as the Referee and Chairman of the Games Committee.

"It is a thrill to see that so many of DePaul's former student-athletes have stayed involved in running," Savage said. "It is a wonderful event and as I always say, there is never a good day without running."

Dave Behof was the first of the Blue Demon alumni to break the tape in 2:52:21, followed by DePaul's first woman finisher All-American Erin Moffet clocking a 2:59:36.

"Hats off to all who braved the challenge of completing a monumental test like the marathon. Great Job!" Savage added.
