Life Time Members Early Access Registration
Life Time owns and produces some of the most incredible athletic events in the world, including Chicago Half Marathon & 5K. Along with athletic events, Life Time’s goal is to reshape the way people approach health and fitness with its healthy way of life communities. As a Life Time member, you get access to our athletic events one week before the event registration or lottery opens to the general public. A Life Time membership also provides you with access to 150+ Life Time athletic country club destinations in the United States and Canada, plus a comprehensive digital platform — all for your happy, healthy way of life.
The Life Time Chicago Half Marathon starts and finishes 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 Life Time Chicago 5K will take place on Sunday, September 24, the same day as the Life Time Chicago Half Marathon, and actually uses the same start line and 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 Half Marathon on to the finish.
