Description
The Chicago Half Marathon gives runners the chance to run on traffic restricted Lake Shore Drive! This scenic 13.1-mile course starts in Historic Jackson Park, site of the 1893 World Columbian Exposition, and winds through the beautiful Hyde Park neighborhood and University of Chicago campus. The course then takes runners along Chicago’s south Lake Shore Drive, taking in the views of Lake Michigan, Chicago skyline and the Science and Industry Museum campus before a triumphant finish at the golden Statue of the Republic.

*times might be slightly adjusted until 1 week prior to the race.
