Description
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
We can't thank you enough for your help but we want to try to show you how much we appreciate you! All volunteers will receive an event specific volunteer shirt, water, snacks, a light meal, service hours, and more.

Volunteer Groups
