Virtual 10K

Like many of you, we at the Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K are bummed to be missing out on all the excitement of race day on May 17th. While we may be missing the roar at the start line, the accomplishment of each passing mile marker, the feeling of crossing the finish line, the taste of that well-earned brunch and the celebration of the post-race party this year, we still want to keep the race day spirit alive. 

We invite you to join us for a Virtual Race Fest! The event will include a Virtual 5K or 10K followed by Virtual Finish Line Festival on May 17th in honor of what would have been race day in Chicago. Invite your friends and family to join you and stay connected (while following social distancing practices of course.) 

Registrants will have the entire month of May to complete the 5K or 10K on their own and submit their results. Registered participants will be able to download a digital bib that they may choose to print out and wear for the run (not mandatory). Once results are submitted, they will receive a customized digital Finisher Certificate. Because this is meant to be an event that connects our community, while upholding proper social distancing practices, we highly encourage registrants to take selfies/video of their run to post on social media. Tag your neighbors/friends/running buddies as well as the Chicago Spring Half Marathon & 10K Facebook and Instagram accounts. 

We are excited to bring this event to you free of charge. Registrants will have the option to make a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) or the Life Time Foundation should you be in a position to give back at this time. 

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for details on the Virtual Race Fest taking place on May 17th. 


We can’t wait to celebrate virtually with you all!
