Mardi Gras Chaser

Date: February 25, 2017
Distance: 5K, 10K

Mardi Gras Chaser

Billed as the “only 10K in the first quarter of the year” in Chicago, this Montrose Harbor race has a carnival atmosphere, with masks and beads available for all participants to wear. It’s not all party mode though - there’s a serious race at the front, with last year’s winners coming through in under 35 mins (men) and 38 minutes (women) respectively! There’s a 5K option for those who like their runs a little shorter.
