Run Club Program


Welcome to the 2023 HOKA 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 a finish fest space, comp codes, and VIP access.

*Please see the below chart for more details.

Club/Team Levels

Below are the different levels of the run club program, each based on the number of athletes registered under your run club. Final roster counts to earn race accommodations will be made on September 4, 2023, or when the race reaches capacity, whichever happens first.

*All tents will come with 1-6′ table and 2 chairs. If you require additional equipment, please see the equipment chart in the dropdown below for pricing information.

Additional Equipment Needs

If your run club has qualified for a finish fest space and requires additional equipment, you MUST notify the program manager prior to September 9th. This is the deadline for equipment to be ordered. Any group that has not requested additional equipment by then will receive the standard equipment allocation. Please see the chart below for additional equipment costs.

Comp. Codes

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 10 or more participants, you will receive a complimentary Finish Fest space with tent to act as your hangout destination post race.

PA Announcements

The bigger your run club, the more shoutouts you will get on race day. The announcements will be performed by our race MC. All we ask of you is that you coordinate specific messaging with our program manager (listed at the bottom of this page).

We look forward to a successful 2023 event with you! If you have any questions, please reach out to Jeremy Weitzman at
