Welcome runners to the first-ever Honda Miles Per Hour Run! This unique indoor race challenges runners to cover as much distance as they can in one hour. Not only will this event be indoors, but it will be taking place through the halls of the Chicago Auto Show! Runners will complete loops (approximately 2.4 miles around) through the massive three main halls of McCormick Place, getting a first-hand look at the auto displays. The loop will include a variety of long straightaways, some unique zig-zags, and even an incline as runners run the indoor the bridge over Lake Shore Drive.

Jill Ciminillo's thoughts:

I hate running outside in the winter. If I do, I'm likely the one you'll see at 40 degrees or below wearing a down jacket and balaclava. So, when the Chicago Area Runners Association created an INDOOR race in dead of winter, I thought it was pure brilliance. Plus, the cost of registration includes entry to the Chicago Auto Show.

While I do think there are a couple of tweaks that could be made, I thought the overall execution of the race was well done -- especially considering that this is in its first year. It was easy to pick up my bib and shirt before the race, and though parking in Lot A was expensive, it was convenient to access McCormick Place -- and be able to leave my coat in the car.

I loved the part of the course that takes you through the show floor, and I'd love to see that be the longer part of the 2.4-mile loop. I understand the need to run into the Lakeside Center, but would love to see more displays, decoration or cheer stations here.

I also really appreciated that the race wasn't super crowded. Lines for medals, gear check and goody bags were small.

I'm absolutely doing this again, and next year I'm putting together a team. I ran the race solo this year, and think it would be a lot more fun with friends, making a day of the entire experience.
