Join the Fun!

There’s a race for everyone.

Experience Spring and Fall with Life Time’s Chicago Half Marathon Series. The Chicago Half Marathon Series is comprised of 2 events; the Chicago Spring Half Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon. Participants who complete both half marathons within the same calendar year will earn some extra hardware to commemorate their outstanding athletic achievement.

Both the Half Marathon and 10K races begin on Columbus Drive, south of Monroe St. The majority of the course travels along Chicago’s Lakefront Trail which provides a flat, fast and incredibly scenic run.

This course will take you through world-famous Grant Park, past the beautiful Museum Campus, and will turnaround shortly after passing McCormick Place. From there, it’s a straight shot north along the Lakefront Trail and back to the finish fest for post-race festivities.

Got kiddos? Make sure they’re a part of the race day fun with the Junior Dash. Children 12 years of age and younger are invited to compete in the Junior Dash around “The Ribbon” at Maggie Daley Park.
