PHOTOS: The Ditka Dash 5k was today and the mustaches were plentiful

Thousands of runners braved the cold (and lingering turkey hangovers) to run in the inaugural Ditka Dash 5k at Soldier Field Saturday morning. I don’t know what the Guinness World Record is for most Mike Ditka impersonators in one place, but there’s a greater than zero chance it was broken today.

So Chicago it hurts.

Of course, Ditka himself was da course marshall.

And like that, they were off!

At the finish line, both selfies and beers were well-represented.

Congratulations on a successful 5k, Ditkanauts. You earned those leftovers tonight.
