Race Information

The Run Mag Mile half and 5k is a very cool race that prides itself on featuring a very unique piece of course... Chicago's famous Magnificent Mile!

For those runners not from Chicago, the Magnificent Mile is one of Chicago's most prestigioius roadways; a section of Michigan street lined with high end real estate, and extra wide roadways. This part of the city gets shut down for the Women's race, giving participants a once a year experience to go out and tackle a thoroughfare that is normally off the list for runners.

The main feature of the race is the road half marathon, however, there is also a 5k for those who don't want to go a full 13 miles. Both courses are relatively fast and flat course with no major hills to be aware of.
