13.1 Chicago – Race Entry Giveaway!

I am sooo excited to announce that I have free race entry to giveaway for the 13.1 Chicago event on June 9, 2012! 

Coming off the recent 13.1 Miami Beach race (recap HERE) makes this that much more exciting for me and I am super envious that I will not be hitting the pavement with you on June 9th!

This is a very unique race for the CHI as it does not go through the loop or the same tired section of the Lake Front running path that you may have run a million times in recent races.  THIS race according to the website:  starts and finishes at the Historic South Shore Cultural Center (SSCC) on Chicago’s south side. The SSCC offers beautiful views of both Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline and has hosted many notable events, including the wedding reception of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. The 13.1 mile course takes you along the Lake front Path past La Rabida Hospital. After passing the hospital, you will run through Jackson Park, home of the 1893 World Columbian Exposition, the Osaka Japanese Garden, a strolling garden on Wooden Island. You will then pass the Museum of Science & Industry, the only original building remaining from the 1893 Columbian Exposition, and one of the largest science museums in the world. You will then head back to the Lakefront Path to almost 35th Street before heading back south, past the 63rd Street Beach House and finishing at the SSCC. This course is 13.1 miles of perfect Windy City experience.

This is a  totally different race experience than what you normally get in Chicago and I will definitely be out there with you next year!

  1. Ah…13.1….a definitely nice half-marathon to set your sights on. I ran this the first or inaugural year they held the race. Ran it under friends bib and posted a fairly nice 1:40 finish time that got him seeded in nice corral for another upcoming race (maybe Chicago marathon?). Anyways, the race is a lot on Lakeshore path, but at the far S-end of the circuit so it is not all the same ole turf you run with other races.

    What you want to take advantage of is the post-race festivities they hold at that S-Shore Cultural Center and grounds just E-side of the main building. It certainly was awesome in the Inaugural year with a “Blues-Brothers” copy act at both the start and the end of the race, and I believe they had other band playing later. Plus, I got this neat caricature drawing of me crossing the finish line with the time on the overhead clock and with caricature of the Blues Brothers jumping up and cheering me on! Awesome…and that framed 8 x 11.5 artwork still hangs on the wall. I hope they still do the caricature thing cause that was a really nice thing to get for a lot of hard running!

    Not sure if they still run this race the same way as they did at the inaugural event, but if that first event is anything similar, then you should give it consideration and go for it! Early June…a nice time to run a half-marathon.
