Runners take your mark! The Chicago Half Marathon is almost here! On September 8 over 18,000 participants will run 13.1-miles down Lake Shore Drive. It’s a great family activity to go to whether you are running or cheering someone on – after all, a little encouragement always helps!
Half Marathon participants must pick up their race packets at The Hyundai hope on Wheels Health & Fitness Expo that is being held here at Navy Pier. The expo will be held on Friday, September 6 from 12 pm – 7 pm and on Sunday, September 7 from 9 am – 5 pm in Festival Hall B. The Expo will serve as the pick-up location for Race numbers, t-shirts and Goodie Bags for all participants.
The Expo will also feature exhibitors (including retailers, personal trainers, and nutritionists) and charity partners of the race. There will be great bargains on running and fitness gear, free sampling and information on equipment and nutrition. It is the perfect event for all endurance athletes and all types of runners.
Event attendees and Half Marathon runners should also note that Navy Pier is one of the best places to grab a post-race celebratory drink and meal! With multiple bars and restaurants to choose from, the Pier has a little something for everyone. Whether you are craving a burger and a beer or pasta a glass of bubbly, the Pier has it all!
We hope you guys are as excited as we are for the upcoming Chicago Half Marathon and the Expo! It’s sure to be a great time and get your hearts pumping!
