D-Club Represents in Chicago Marathon

Mazik Family Finishers: Chris and Jim Mazik and proud mother Development Associate Marge Mazik

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.
