Chicago Half Marathon

September 27th, 2020

Gyms and recreational facilities have been closed, but the streets have remained open for training, and the Chicago Half Marathon is waiting for you this September 27th! Now more than ever, your health and well-being matter. At this same time, families in Central America are extremely hungry after not having been able to work and earn money during a multi-month lockdown. You can do this! We will support you every step of the way with training plans, training groups, tons of encouragement, and fantastic fundraising rewards. And if Chicago has not opened up for large events this fall, we will host smaller races in the Chicago area and Central Illinois. No matter the challenges, running is not canceled! Generosity and hope for hungry families in Central America are not canceled!
