If your family doesn’t rely on school meals, you may not be aware of the heroic efforts of Chicago Public Schools’ nutrition professionals. When COVID-19 hit Chicago, the district’s School Lunch Heroes responded to school closures without hesitation committing to feed the children of our city through the unknowns of this health crisis. We applaud their commitment to feeding our children and encourage you to support them.

Please consider supporting Chicago Public Schools, so they can continue to serve our children during this time of crisis.

100% of your registration fee will be turned into a tax-deductible donation to the Life Time Foundation who will administer all proceeds – 100% benefitting Chicago Public Schools.

Celebrate the 24th annual running of the HOKA ONE ONE Chicago Half Marathon & 5K, a signature event produced by Life Time.

Stepping off on Sunday, September 27, the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K is centered around Chicago’s historic Jackson Park, once home to the 1893 World Columbian Exposition. The course highlights Chicago’s historic south shore and features a traffic-free Lake Shore Drive–the only Chicago race to completely shut down this main transportation artery.  Runners traverse the streets of Hyde Park and the Museum of Science and Industry Campus before taking on the north and south Lake Shore Drive lanes and finishing at the Statue of the Republic or “Golden Lady” as she’s known to locals.

The Chicago Half Marathon supports the programming of our benefiting charity partner Chicago Run, promoting the health and wellness of Chicago children through innovative, engaging, and sustainable youth running programs.
