Mardi Gras Chaser
Back On My Feet Chicago's Mardi Gras Chaser 5K/10K is an early year race that culminates in the tastes and sounds of Nawlins. It's the only Mardi Gras run in Chicago, so if you're in the mood to pick up some beads, this is the race to join.
By participating you'll also be supporting Back On My Feet Chicago, the only charity that supports the local homeless community through the power of running. "All proceeds from the race will support Back On My Feet in providing programming to change lives one job, house, and mile at a time."
An out and back course, the race starts west along the harbor before turning south on the main lakefront path. The 5K turns around at the end of Belmont Harbor, and the 10K turns around at the south end of Diversey Harbor.
The finish line is in the Montrose Harbor race village.
