Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Series
This marathon series allows you to run 5K marathons from anywhere you want and at anytime. After training, join a running group and earn medals to add to your collection. This is a unique style of marathon as it allows you to save fees, skip lines and compete with others without having to alter your schedule! Truly an innovation in “virtual” running …
Happening in October, this massive marathon is one of the major world marathons held in America with nearly 37,182 finishers in 2015. The course takes runners through 29 of Chicago’s neighborhoods and the uniquely flat course has encouraged many world record performance attempts.
