The perfect race for the first-time runner, and the elite athlete alike. Looking for an early season primer? How about a springtime PR to kick off your season?  Or, maybe you want a race you can run with your kids without fighting big-city traffic and congestion. This race is for you!

With a start and finish at beautiful Millennium Park, runners will travel over roads, paved trails, and bridges while enjoying the rolling terrain, wetlands and lakes that encompass this unique location. Food and beverages, music, and family fun will be available throughout the event.

If you are training for the Fifth Third River Bank Run, this half marathon fits in nicely with the suggested training schedule for that race.


1/2 Marathon – 8:00 AM
