Race Information

The Chicago Half Marathon is one of Chicago's premier hometown races! This event is the only race in Chicago that completely shuts down Lake Shore Drive, giving you an opportunity to see the city in a way that's usually not possible.

Everything starts and finishes in Historic Jackson Park, just south of the Museum of Science and Industry. Runners will wind through beautiful Hyde Park before running along traffic-free Lake Shore Drive offering sweeping views of the Chicago skyline and south shore.
