HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon

Sunday, September 26, 2021

The HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon gives you the chance to run on traffic restricted Lake Shore Drive! This scenic half marathon course starts 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 course then takes runners along Chicago’s south Lake Shore Drive, taking in the views of Lake Michigan, Chicago skyline and the Science and Industry Museum campus before a triumphant finish at the golden Statue of the Republic.

  • The Chicago Half Marathon is the only race in Chicago that gets to close down Lake Shore Drive completely between 67th Street and 31st Street. It is one of the coolest things to be able to run on one of the nation’s most famous and scenic roads. By having the road completely closed it makes for a very safe race with no traffic buzzing by participants. With this comes a price as all participants must maintain a 16-minute mile pace. This pace goes into effect as soon as the last participant crosses the start line which takes about 20 minutes.

Refund, Transfers, Deferrals

While Life Time is committed to planning our scheduled events in 2021, we don’t know the extent to which our lineup will continue to be impacted by COVID-19. As such we have revisited and revised our policy on entry refunds, deferrals, and transfers to provide more athlete flexibility for event participation. A link to this policy will be included in the registration process, whereby participants must indicate that they understand and accept the terms.
