The Welcome Matt was out last week at the Tinley Park Stars and Stripes 5K Run.

The top three finishers of the 28th version of the annual July 4 race were all named Matt. 

Lisle’s Mitch Gilbert, who won the race last year and had captured first in seven of the previous eight races, did not run the event and the Matts took over.

Tinley Park chiropractor Alexis Landgrebe won the women's division with a time of 21 minutes: one-tenth of a second. That was good for 30th place overall.
