Volition America Half Marathon and 5K - Chicago Race Description

Run with us alongside scenic Lake Michigan and Chicago's famous Lakeshore Drive for Volition America’s Half-Marathon & 5K. Join us at Arvey Field in Chicago’s historic Grant Park for the Volition America Half Marathon & 5K. This new half marathon series is the first of it's kind to honor America through running and is steeped with patriotic distinction.

This chip timed event offers scenic views along Lake Michigan and the Chicago Lakefront. Athletes will wind though landmarks such as: Museum Campus, Shedd Aquarium, Soldier Field, McCormick Place and 31st Street Beach. After victoriously crossing the finish line you can refuel with a variety of refreshments and enjoy live entertainment in Arvey Field. All Half Marathon and 5K participants receive a Volition America Technical T-shirt and finisher medal.

New this year: The Double Duty Challenge. Run in both Volition America Illinois events on June 4th & September 11th and you will get a third finisher medal showing your accomplishments! You only have to register once- just choose the Double Duty option on your registration and you will be entered into both races. This registration is only available through June 4, 2016.
