After a long Chicago winter, it’s time to celebrate. Trade those boots for running shoes and meet us in Maggie Daley Park for the Life Time Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K! Stroll along the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline, then GET THE PARTY STARTED at our Spring Market Finish Festival complete with take-home flowers, beer, brunch, live music, photo ops and much more. Shake off the winter blues and celebrate the spring, Chicago-style.

Join the Fun!

There’s a race for everyone.

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.
