JUNETEENTH! This 31st IEEE PVSC Sun Run (our first run was in 1980!) is scheduled for 6:15 am on Wednesday, June 19, 2019—and coincides with a little-known but important state holiday, Juneteenth–also called Emancipation Day! The start time will ensure that everyone will be back in time for the very important morning sessions! Please register on-line with your conference registration. The run course (appropriately a “Loop”) has been designed to begin on the newly inaugurated Chicago Riverwalk (near the conference hotel) and to give spectacular views of the Chicago Skyline and Lake Michigan. Runners (both competitive and “just fun”!) can register online or at the meeting. The registration fee covers a very special T-shirt, refreshments, recognitions for outstanding performances—and some other commemorative materials, of value something between a Chicago pizza and the Picasso at Daley Plaza. Awards (at the Wednesday, noontime Award Ceremony in the conference registration area) will be made in several age categories for our men and women competitors. We will continue to host the PV Corporate Cup Competition for teams (3 or more runners) for which the times are handicapped by both age and gender using our long-tested (since 1984!) system.
