The Life Time Chicago 5K will take place on Sunday, September 29, the same day as the Life Time Chicago Half Marathon, and actually uses the same 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 Chicago Half Marathon on to the finish.

Age Requirement

Age limit for the 5K distance is 8 and over. This means if your child will be 8 by the date of the race (9/29/2024), they are able to participate in this distance.
