Description
Volition America is a patriotic themed half marathon and 5K series taking place in Chicago, IL on June 6, 2015. We will be bringing the series to 10 of the most patriotic cities in the country. Because we believe in a stronger America at every finish line, we strive to promote and work with other American and local based companies for all of our race needs.
