About

Come celebrate the 2020 Chicago Half Marathon & 5K with us! This year's epic event traverses the streets around Hyde Park and the Museum of Science and Industry before winding on to traffic-free Lake Shore Drive. We couldn't put on a world-class event like the Chicago Half Marathon without the help of our volunteers!



Perks
