THE COURSE

Start:  Participants start in McCormick Place's Lakeside Center.

 

Route: From the start, this entirely indoor run will race around the three main halls of McCormick Place, including laps through the Chicago Auto Show floor past incredible auto displays. Runners will experience breathtaking views of the Chicago Skyline as they cross over Grand Concourse bridge and wide views of Lake Michigan through the Lakeside Center's expansive walls of windows.

 

Route Length: The route is approximately 2.4 miles, with a variety of long straightaways, some unique zig-zags, and even inclines as runners run the bridge over Lake Shore Drive.

 

Finish: Your finish line is what you make it. Run as far as you can in one-hour, and then take in the Chicago Auto Show with special early access. Timing mats will be placed throughout the course every 1/4 mile to catch your finish result.
