More than five-hundred people took part in the inaugural Dawn of the Dunes Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K at Marquette Park in Gary Sunday morning, the first marathon hosted by the city. The course for the event traveled through some residential, hilly and wooded areas. Finishing first in the full marathon was 48-year-old Jeff Mescal of Lowell, at just under two-hours, 50-minutes.  The Gary Parks Department put together a charity team that participants could join to raise money toward reopening city pools at public parks in 2014.  [Photo courtesy/Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson]
