RAVENSWOOD — It's a runner's world and the rest of us are just living in it — at least this Sunday.

The annual Ravenswood Run 5k is set for 8 p.m., April 28, with a sold-out capacity of 3,500 racers taking part in the event.

Expect street closures at the start and finish lines — Hermitage and Wilson avenues — and parking restrictions along the route, which has changed, due to construction, from years past.

Portions of Lawrence and Lincoln avenues are in play, unlike in previous runs. Signs have been posted along the route on trees, light posts and lawns to alert residents of traffic issues.

Participants and spectators are encouraged to bike to the race or take public transportation, though the latter is a dicey proposition given ongoing Brown Line construction.

Proceeds from the race benefit the Ravenswood Community Services Food Pantry at All Saints' Episcopal Church and the student health centers at Lake View and Amundsen High Schools.
