Chicago Women's Half Marathon & 5KHistory will be made at the Chicago Women\'s Half Marathon & 5K on Sunday, August 31, 2014. It will be the first race ever that will have downtown's Magnificent Mile as part of the course. Officially known as Michigan Avenue, this renowned stretch of real estate boasts an array of upscale shops, fine dining establishments and enticing entertainment options.
Thousands of women will be entered in this annual event that begins at 7:00 a.m. in Grant Park. Everyone who registers to run will be the recipient of a stylish and high-end performance racerback tank, which can be used both on and off the track, especially at the gym. What makes this top so popular is its UPF rating of over 50 and the hidden rear pocket for storage.
All those who cross the finish line in the Chicago Women\'s Half Marathon & 5K will be awarded a 2014 Commemorative Finisher Medal. It\'s a truly special acknowledgement of a truly major accomplishment. Beginning at 7:30 a.m., the post-race party will get started with all the 5K runners. Held at Buckingham Fountain, the party will feature great food, beverages and some of the finest music around. Once the half-marathoners are done, they are welcome to join the festivities along with friends, family members and anyone else who happens to be in the neighborhood.
