Indeed, my thought when I saw your comments (and before I saw that article) was 'do not count on it.'  If you live in a significant population corridor then your area is a possible target for the Competitor Group.  At least you have Chicago nearby in the fall, so Competitor likely would not want to compete (pun intended) with that draw for the area and thus spares Lakefront.  Makes sense that they would do a spring one with none in metro Chicago in the spring yet locate it in Milwaukee, which would be cheaper for shutting down urban streets.  Interesting that a guy affiliated with the store that you run for is pushing for it.  The local running rag here has been shoving RnR Denver down its readership's throat — hope they get well paid for that.  It is ironic that a company that chose the moniker competitor does so little for competitive athletes in the locations of its races.
