WHAT TO EXPECT

Join us as we run the Lakefront Trail for the best Chicagoland 20 mile training run. This fully supported 20-miler is the ultimate way to successfully complete your marathon training 20 miler. You will have the support of thousands of other runners and you won't be running loops to complete your pre-marathon 20-miler. We have an excellent point-to-point course for runners, complete with post-run transportation back to the start. Also included in this great event day experience:

 

  • Pace leaders for run paces 7:30 to 12:00 minutes and Run / Walk paces 11:00 to 12:00 minutes

  • 11 on-course aid stations. We've added TWO new additional stations for 2019!

  • Gear check with gear transported from start to finish

  • Exclusive finishers shirt to all runners who complete the Ready to Run 20 Miler

  • Finish Line Party to celebrate your last long run before the Bank of America Chicago Marathon or your fall marathon

  • Free post-race shuttle with stops at downtown and back at the start line (Montrose Beach)

  • Post-event stretching and injury analysis with NovaCare Rehabilitation

  • Complimentary post-race snacks and drinks, including Michelob Ultra Beer and Truly Hard Seltzer!
