- 3 miles/5K, 13.1/Half Marathon
- Road Race
Great Half for first timers in Chiacgo. The course is pretty flat. In 2013 this was my first half marathon. Great course, well managed, and who can hate the view as your running up Lake Shore Dr looking at the Chicago Skyline. A lot of people stop mid race to grab a quick pic. I opted to take the shuttle bus from the loop to the race. Super easy and cuts the hassle of trying to figure out parking or how your getting there. It also gives you a good chance to talk with fellow runners. Race swag is normally a long sleeve running shirt. They also have a 5k option.
