Run Mag Mile
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.
Both the half marathon and 5k courses start and finish in Grant Park. Expect a mostly flat, and very scenic course along the waterfront, and of course, back up Michigan Avenue.
