In the event of an emergency, race officials must have emergency contact information on hand, therefore you are NOT allowed to participate using another person’s registration. There are NO exceptions. You may follow the Bib Transfer policy found on our website under Changes/Deferral. Failure to follow this policy will result in disqualification and from this and future Life Time events.

Deferrals allow a participant unable to attend this year’s event to transfer their registration to the following year. The deferral is applied only to the event in question, in this case the 2025 Life Time Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K.
