Chicago Half Marathon Runners

Half Marathon

The HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon 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 5K will take place on Sunday, September 26, the same day as the HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon, and actually uses the same start line and finish line as the Chicago Half Marathon. The race is a great opportunity for friends and families to participate before they cheer their loved ones competing in the Half Marathon on to the finish.

Run The L

We challenge you to Run the L! Run (or walk, wheel or bike) the entire distance of Chicago’s elevated public transit system. We’ll give you 8 weeks to tackle 131 miles. Do it solo or grab a running buddy to divide and conquer this unique challenge! We’ll give you the motivation you need each week as we take on a new line between March 22 and May 16.

Stay up to date with all things #CHIHalf
