Life Time Chicago Spring 10K

Race Day: Sunday, May 18, 2025

Not ready for the Half? No sweat — well, maybe a little sweat. Join us for the Life Time Chicago Spring 10K and soak in the same Lake Michigan views through Chicago’s historic museum campus, past Soldier Field and into the waiting arms of the Spring Market Finish Fest at Maggie Daley Park.

Age limit for the 10K distance is 13 and over. This means if your child will be 13 by the date of the race (5/18/2025), they are able to participate in this distance.

Awards will be given to the top three overall male, female and non-binary finishers. Additional awards will be given to the top three men and women in the following age groups:

19 & Under

*Award winners who wish to receive their award but do not pick up on race day may select to have their award mailed. Shipping charges will apply.

If you require a Gear Check bag, you may pick one up at the dedicated Gear Check located at the southwest corner of Maggie Daley Park. Gear should be dropped-off prior to entering the Start Corrals.

In order to leave your personal items at Gear Check, participants must:

  • Step 1 – Remove all contents from your backpack or purse, place them inside the clear plastic bag, and fold your backpack to place it in the clear bag.
  • Step 2 – Attach the Gear Check tab from your race bib, using the beaded tie provided, to the bag for easy identification. You must display your race bib to drop off and pick up items from Gear Check. Baggage will not be accepted if your items are not properly stored inside the clear bag. All checked items must be visible.

Please note:
All items must be placed inside the CLEAR PLASTIC BAGS provided at Gear Check on race morning. Baggage will not be accepted if your items are not properly stored inside the bag.
