2018 Athlete Guide
Welcome to the 22nd annual running of Chicago’s Hometown Race, the Chicago Half Marathon and 5K presented by MY FIT KEY.
The Chicago Half Marathon celebrates Chicago’s rich history with a nod to the 125th Anniversary of the World Columbian Exposition held in 1893 at the same site where we will celebrate your victorious crossing of the Finish Line.
In this 22nd year, we also look to our future as Jackson Park will soon undergo a major facelift, welcoming the Barack Obama Presidential Center.
A few changes will take place this year, most notably the introduction of the Healthy Way of Life Expo where you will pick up your race materials. With a new location, fitness demonstrations, the Lagunitas Shake-out Run and more, you won’t want to miss the fun.
Please take a moment to review this year’s Athlete Guide which is full of all the important race weekend details.
Welcome to race week – game on!
