Life Time Chicago Half Marathon & 5K

Presented by HOKA

September 29, 2024


Gain an iconic Chicago experience through the lens of our city’s most established half marathon.

After launching race weekend with live music and entertainment at the Pre-Race Party, you’ll hit the pavement for exclusive access to Lake Shore Drive, historic Southside neighborhoods and unrivaled skyline views — and bring the kids (ages 2-12) along for the Kids Run Chicago! Whether you’re chasing a PR, need a tune-up for your next race, or a memorable family weekend in the city, an historic Chicago race experience awaits you at the 27th Annual Life Time Chicago Half Marathon and 5K presented by HOKA.


There’s a race for everyone.

Experience Spring and Fall with Life Time’s Chicago Half Marathon Series. The Chicago Half Marathon Series is comprised of 2 events; the Chicago Spring Half Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon. Participants who complete both half marathons within the same calendar year will earn some extra hardware to commemorate their outstanding athletic achievement.

The Life Time Chicago Half Marathon presented by HOKA starts and finishes 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 Life Time Chicago 5K will take place on the same day as the Life Time Chicago Half Marathon. This race uses the same start and finish line as the Chicago Half Marathon. The 5K is a great opportunity for friends and families to participate before they cheer for their loved ones participating in the Half Marathon.

Introduce your youngsters (ages 2-12) to the wonderful world of running at the Kids Run Chicago! Turn race day into family day and give everyone an opportunity to run out some energy, Chicago-style. After you finish your event, grab a front-row seat to watch the next generation of runners take the stage.
