The Allstate Life Insurance Chicago 13.1 Marathon will once again take to the South Shore of Chicago on June 8, 2013. Although this is a newer race in Chicagoland, it is a good one! The 13.1 race series is known for putting together great races with a few extras, gender specific race shirts, unique locations and a crowd pleasing after party. For what they offer, the event is still priced reasonably with the current registration fee of $80. Possibly the best part of the Chicago event is the unique location. This is one of the few races held south of Jackson Park. Runners start and finish at the South Shore Cultural Center, loop thru Jackson Park, then take to the lakefront for amazing views of both Lake Michigan and the city of Chicago.
I’ve wanted to run this event for multiple years but it hasn’t worked out for a variety of reasons. I had planned to be out of town this year as well but I’m thinking we had an abrupt change of plans over the last couple weeks so I’m going to try to squeeze this in and I hope to see lots of friendly faces.
