Race Information

Join us in Chicago for a 5k/10k run at 8pm. Your $30 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its $600,000 fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

The start and finish line will be located in downtown Chicago at Millennium Park (on Michigan Avenue) . The run will wind through park and extend from Randolph (north border) down to Roosevelt (south border) before winding back up Michigan Avenue to where we started. We have used part of this route in prior runs, and the skyline, Cloud Gate, and Art Institute offer a great backdrop for a "brisk" run in November. The 5km run will finish back where we started near Michigan Ave and Washington, while any committed stoic 10km runners loop around one extra time while braving the November Chicago winds.
