Welcome to the 2021 Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K Virtual Run Club Program. The purpose of the Run Club Program is to create a fun and engaging environment with the goal of building more meaningful relationships within our running community through special marketing opportunities.
Participating in our Run Club Program also comes with its perks. Each run club that registers for the Run Club Challenge will receive a registration discount for every athlete that signs up under your club name. As your run club registration numbers grow, your group will qualify for additional perks such as social media highlights that promote your run club across our social platforms, informative zoom calls with LT Staff, opportunities to win weekly giveaways from event sponsors, and much more.
