Tie up your running shoes because we’re about to show you why Chicago is our favorite city! The 3rd annual Chicago’s Perfect 10 Run is back! Join us along the lakefront for a 10 mile or 10K race showing off Chicago’s most phenomenal sights that may just take your breath away – but don’t forget you’re running!
Saturday, November 9th at Navy Pier, runners will take off from the Pier and head down the lakefront for views of the skyline, the lake and everything in between. City dwellers, suburbanites and tourists – this race is for you! There’s nothing better than passing the city’s greatest landmarks while running with friends!
The views aren’t the only perks of the race. All runners will receive a spinning finisher’s medal, commemorative long-sleeve hoodie, access to post-race food and refreshments, plus special offers to some of Navy Pier’s most famous attractions! That’s not all – the top three in each age group will receive awards that will be sent post-race.
All participants are also welcome to join us at the event day Quality of Life Expo that will be held in Navy Pier’s Lakeview Terrace. This event will provide visitors with tools, products, and knowledge for a healthy and active lifestyle. The expo is open 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Chicago’s Perfect 10 is not just a fun run down the lakefront. It supports two causes: Gateway for Cancer Research, a nonprofit organization that funds Phase I and Phase II clinical trials across all cancer types and aims to improve the lives of those living with cancer today; and Team Demand, Gateway’s national grassroots charity athlete program uniting cause and community.
The race starts at 7:30 a.m. The 10K participants will step off in a heat after all 10 mile runners cross the start line. They will line up after the 10 mile runners.
Registration is open online until Nov. 5 and available for purchase at the Expo.
