Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in the 26th Life Time Chicago Half Marathon & 5K Presented by HOKA.

Save the date! The 2024 event will take place September 29, 2024. Registration opens in early January.


If you are driving or taking a ride share service to the start line, please know there is significant construction on South Dusable Lake Shore Drive between 35th and 53rd street causing a reduction in traffic lanes.

We HIGHLY encourage athletes to take the Dan Ryan Expressway (I-90/94) and then head East toward the Museum of Science and Industry parking lots. Note: Google/Apple Maps or your Uber/Lyft driver may be routing you to Lake Shore Drive, however we HIGHLY recommend selecting an alternate route.

We can’t reiterate enough the importance of planning ahead and arriving early. Lake Shore Drive will completely close at 6am. Any half marathon athlete that arrives late and misses the start of the half marathon will only have the option to participate in the 5K.

Spectators can track athletes’ progress through the course via Athlinks. You can also sign-up for SMS updates. Read more about SMS updates below.
