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. Life Time members — after six months of Club-Access Membership — get entry to our athletic events one week before the event registration opening to the general public or guaranteed registration in lotteries.

Half Marathon

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 29, 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.

Kids Run Chicago

Introduce your youngsters (ages 2-12) to the wonderful world of running at the Kids Run Chicago! Turn race day into family day and give everyone an opportunity to run out some energy, Chicago-style. After you finish your event, grab a front-row seat to watch the next generation of runners take the stage — and earn a t-shirt and medal of their own along the way.

Chicago Half Marathon Series

Participants who complete both the Life Time Chicago Spring Half Marathon and Life Time Chicago Half Marathon will earn a 3rd medal to commemorate their amazing achievement.
