This race is so inspiring… the monuments, the blue mile, the marines staffing the water stations. This is a must do experience. It is well run, and easy to get to the start and finish. That last hill is a killer, but when you get to the top, the marines that cheer you on are fantastic!

I volunteered as a course marshall at mile marker 25 and loved watching Sir Mo fly by me to win this race and break a record. As a former runner of this race, I appreciated seeing the front of the pack. The race is well run and the city of Chicago does a fantastic job. Great hotel and food options near the race.

This was my first trail race, and I really enjoyed it. Small field, but the people running the race were fantastic…very nice, supportive, and encouraging. The weather was misty which made the hills slippery and challenging. Great variation in the terrain with some rolling hills, forest single-track, bog crossings, and open fields. It was my first trail race, but it won’t be my last.

This is a good point-to-point half with good support along the course. Start is at the Starved Rock park so begins with a couple hills but then flattens out and the run along the river is comfortable. The race has a smaller field, but is well supported.

This race is first class. The city goes all out for it and the neighborhoods provide great energy. The expo is great and the race is well run. The course is flat and well supported. This is a race you must do.
