    The race took place in West Chicago so it is a bit different from the traditional setting of being right by the lake for the Chicago marathon.

    I think the logistics and course were fine. The course was pretty flat. The route consisted of looping around Humboldt, Garfield, and Douglas park. It wasn’t a very scenic course but it was well marked and had great crowd support.

    This was the inaugural run of this race. It is well outside of the city where races normally take place. It was extremely well organized, had plenty of water on the course, including wet sponges which was a major bonus! However, once outside of the parks, there isn’t much to look at and there is no shade to be found. On a hot day this course could be brutal. There was no real swag to speak of, but the after party had beer and an area for kids to play.

    BOA Chicago 13.1 has entered the crowded area half marathon field. The team that produces the World Major, Chicago Marathon has put together a half that shows a side of town that many visitors never see.

    This course was fantastic: All of it through the historic boulevards and Olmstead parks of the city’s West Side. Beautiful leafy parks. There was a flat part, and then another flat part, and then it was flat some more.

    Only 2,700 in this first year, but it was full of the seamless professionalism, conscious sustainability and clever branding you find at the marathon.

    The day was full of people saying either, “Welcome to the West Side” or “Gosh, I have never been in this neighborhood before”. The most racially diverse running crowd that I have ever seen – the whole running community. It made me proud to see our city and people. The newest half marathon in Chicago might have just taken 1st Place.
