Event Details

Say hello to the Windy City's newest running event! 

In 2014, Chicagoland's family of annual run/walks and full/half marathons will welcome an exciting addition to the region's vibrant running scene with the debut of the inaugural Chicago Quarter Marathon. 

When it debuts this April outside Soldier Field, it will be Chicago's only 6.55-mile run and guaranteed to draw participants looking for a new and unique running experience. The Quarter Marathon's course route will be south along the Lake Michigan shoreline before looping back to Soldier Field where a post-race party will greet runners with snacks, awards and a live band. 

To make their experience even more memorable, all marathon registrants will receive a gender-specific, full-zip embroidered fleece. In addition, a portion of Quarter Marathon proceeds will benefit a great organization: Chicago-headquartered Prevent Child Abuse America.
