There are over a dozen “serious” running events that take place in and near the South Loop. These events are typically over 5 kilometers and are almost always timed. Some of them, like the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, are generally targeted to hard-core runners, whereas others, like the Monster Dash Half Marathon and 10k, also have a fun run component.
We’ll update this article as we find out about additional events throughout the year, so check back for the latest. And as always, we invite you to let us know if we’ve missed something.
