All three races - half marathon, 10K and 5K - are chip timed and held in Grant Park, along Chicago's waterfront. Enjoy the views of the city and the tranquility of the water.
The half marathon route is a double loop of the park, so a great place to test your pacing. Finishers all get beer and breakfast to enjoy at the country music concert afterwards.
