Chicago Half Marathon & 5K
The annual running of the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K is a signature event produced by Life Time.
The race is centered around Chicago’s historic Jackson Park, once home to the 1893 World Columbian Exposition. The course highlights Chicago’s historic south shore and features a traffic-free Lake Shore Drive – the only Chicago race to completely shut down this main transportation artery. Runners traverse the streets of Hyde Park and the Museum of Science and Industry Campus before taking on the north and south Lake Shore Drive lanes and finishing at the Statue of the Republic, or “Golden Lady” as she’s known to locals.
