Course HighlightsThe course follows a point-to-point route that keep runners mostly along the shoreline of Lake Michigan, roughly parallel to Lake Shore Drive for most of the race. That means the race is a largely fast and flat one, as it unfolds near the elevation of the lake and the course never rises more than about 25 feet in elevation from its lowest point. There are rolling hills here and there along the route — which starts along the Lakeshore Trail, near North Lake Shore Drive and East Randolph Street — there are also plentiful flat stretches. Along the race route, runners will get to see some of the sights and attractions for which the Windy City is most famous — from the Navy Pier near the starting line to the trails that run alongside Lake Shore Drive southward down to where the race turnaround points occur, near the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Soldier Field, the home of the National Football League’s Chicago Bears. Runners make their way south along Lake Michigan for the first six miles of the race to the turnaround point at Morgan Point, which looks out onto Morgan Shoal. After that, runners then head back north along the lakeshore, passing the 31st Street Harbor, Burnham Harbor and Monroe Harbor to the finish line at Lake Shore East Park.
