Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

Organized by Competitor Group, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is the ‘World’s Largest Running Series’ with more than 500,000 runners taking part in 28 destination events around the world. What started as a simple idea in 1998—the idea of making running fun– soon transformed the U.S. running landscape by infusing the race course with live bands, cheer teams and entertaining water stations. The outdoor festivals encapsulate cities in their entirety and culminate with a finish line festival featuring a concert headlined by some of the best music acts around. Over the 17-year history of the series, charity partners have raised more than $300 million through the events for a variety of worthy causes. Today, the series of entertainment themed marathons and half-marathons continues to enjoy great appeal for the traveling runner, tremendous local support and has firmly established itself as a dynamic running platform.

And remember, when you need to travel downtown for all of Chicago’s great summer events, you can enjoy the convenience of parking with Millennium Garages – located in the heart of Chicago’s summer fun.
