Szasz, Ralph, Gorski Will Receive Recognition for Running and Writing


Byline: Bob Frisk

They will walk to the head table to receive their awards, but running is the reason Michael Szasz, Michelle Ralph and Reggie Gorski will be honored Saturday night.

The three residents of the Daily Herald area will be recognized by the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) during the annual awards party and fundraiser at the Chicago Athletic Association, 12 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago.

The 6 p.m. event will feature winners in several categories, but three of the main awards will go to Szasz of Vernon Hills, Ralph of Gurnee and Gorski of Palatine.

Szasz and Ralph will receive the group's runner of the year awards.

"Michael Szasz and Michelle Ralph are the best on the local running scene," said David Patt, CARA's Chief Executive Officer. "They've run the toughest races in Chicagoland and have come out on top."

Szasz, 30, a Hungarian native, won 5 races from 5K to 10-mile distances, while attending Oakton Community College.

Ralph, 36, a physical therapist, won 4 races from 5K to the half-marathon distance.

Gorski, who retired from sports writing in June after covering girls track and field and cross country for the Daily Herald for 17 years, will receive the Hal Higdon Journalism Award. She also covered many major running events in the Chicago area for the Herald.

Named for the author, runner, Runner's World columnist and Chicago native, the Higdon award recognizes journalists whose writing promoted running in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Tickets for the event are $45 per person, $35 for anyone 19 and younger and 70 and older. Tables of 10 are available for $400.

For more information, contact CARA at (312) 666-9836 or www.cararuns.org.

CARA is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit, membership association promoting health and fitness through running.
