Runners will follow an out-and-back loop course that starts and finishes at Arvey Field in Grant Park. From the park, the race route heads north along the lakeshore for much of the 13.1-mile course, taking runners through the districts and neighborhoods surrounding the park, including Soldier Field as well as Chicago’s Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium. The turnaround lies near the northern end of Lincoln Park, and from there runners head back south along the lakeshore to Grant Park for the race finish.
