Registration is Open!

The Life Time Chicago Spring Half Marathon offers sweeping views of Chicago’s famed skyline and shores of Lake Michigan, the city’s historic museum campus and Soldier Field. The race starts and finishes on Columbus Drive alongside Maggie Daley Park where runners will celebrate their achievements at our Spring Market Finish Festival and enjoy a hot gourmet breakfast buffet and beer (must be 21 years or older).

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:

Age group award winners will receive a custom award handcrafted locally by artists from ViaClay. Age group winners should pick up their award from the Results Tent in the Finish Festival starting at 10am. 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.

Age limit for the half marathon distance is 14 and over. This means if your child will be 14 by the date of the race (5/22/2022), they are able to participate in this distance.
