    The medal is awesome!! There were tons of aid stations along the course. The course is pretty easy – no steep hills. It was just very crowded and at one part, the 10k runners cut right through the half course. The swag bag offered nothing that I wanted and left it all at the hotel. The start line was really easy to find.

    This is a race that I have run multiple times & will continue to do in the future. It features a nice course with the first miles on city streets to ensure enough space for runners at the start and then the rest is mostly on the lakefront path. The race has a good number of aid stations. You can appreciate the beautiful lakefront for nearly the entire race and in the final half features nice views of the skyline. Following the race, they serve a warm brunch with a lot of good food, beer from Lagunita’s, and a band. They also have a fresh flower station so you bring home a growing flower. From start to after party, it’s a great experience and a great value.

    This is a beautiful half marathon run on Chicago’s south Lake Front Path. It is a free public path that is used by walkers and cyclists, and it isn’t very wide, so it can get a little congested. It is also where I log 90% of my training runs, so I have a slight bias against it (why pay for a path I can run for free?). However, I do realize that I take this beautiful path for granted — not everyone has access to it so easily. But if you’re a middle- or back-of-the-pack runner, I imagine it can get pretty congested. That said, great medals, awesome post-race party and convenient shuttles to the start earn this two eager thumbs up from me. Also, it’s my standing PR.
