Half Marathon & 5K Participant Shirts

Half Marathon Medal

5K Medal


The Chicagoland Half Marathon Series is comprised of 2 events; Chicago Spring Half Marathon and the HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon. Both events are signature events produced by Life Time and their Chicago based production team.

Ambitious participants have the opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding athletic achievement in taking part in our two Chicago races with the 26.2 Challenge award.

The HOKA Chicago Half Marathon will be the second event in the 2021 Chicagoland Half Marathon Series. Participants who complete both half marathon distances will earn a custom 26.2 Challenge finisher medal at the final event.

2020 Series Dates

Chicago Spring Half Marathon – May 23, 2021

HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon – September 26, 2021

 The Chicagoland Half Marathon Series is limited to the first 2,000 individuals who register for both half marathon distance races. Competitive awards will be offered to the top three male and female finishers using combined scores from both events.

As each race approaches, information will be made available regarding special program instructions and race perks. Contention rosters will be updated and posted here throughout the year.


Contention for the Chicagoland Half Marathon Series Challenge is based on the completion of both the Chicago Spring Half Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon in the same calendar year.
