Run Club Program
Welcome to the 2021 Chicago Half Marathon & 5K Run Club Program. We welcome your run club to join us as we run along Lake Shore Dr. and through the historic Jackson Park. For over two decades, our race has partnered with over 50 run clubs throughout the Chicagoland area and neighboring states to provide a challenging yet also rewarding experience for your avid runners. Keep the tradition going and join our run club program today by registering your group via the link at the bottom of this page. We look forward to seeing you all on the final Sunday in September.
In addition to the unforgettable experience you and your run club will share together, your group will also receive race perks to make the experience even better! The first perk you and your athletes will receive is a discount of $10 off of your registration. After that, as your team grows, you will earn additional perks such as comped codes for coaches or athletes, social media highlights, and much more.
*Please see the below chart for more details.
Below are the different levels of the run club program, each based on the number of athletes registered under your run club. Final program details will be calculated 30 days prior to race weekend (August 27).
*All spaces include 1 table and 2 chairs / In order to bring your own tent, teams must submit a COI.
For every 20 participants that register under your run club, you will earn 1 fully comped discount code. This code can be distributed to anyone of your choosing (i.e. coaches, runners, club staff, etc.) Talk about an awesome perk!!
Social Media Plugs
As a bonus for your participation, your run club will be highlighted on our social media platforms. These highlights can cover your club’s mission, historical background, an athlete shout out, etc.
Finish Fest Space and Tent
When your run club accumulates 20 or more participants, you will receive a complimentary Finish Fest space with tent to act as your hangout destination post race.
The bigger your run club, the more shoutouts you will get on race day. The announcements can be performed by anyone affiliated with your club or our race MC can provide those messages as well. The choice is completely up to you, we just ask that you coordinate that with our program manager (listed at the bottom of this page).
