  • Did the event in 2012

    This was my first marathon. I had a great time. The course was easy to follow. The run itself was nice. Very flat, one hill that you went up twice. The set up was great and the aid stations were great also. I would definitely do this race as a qualifier for Boston or just as a first marathon. The parking is a little difficult as the race has grown since I've been there. The management of the race was very well done. I was unable to really attend the expo so I couldn't tell you much about that.
  • Did the event in 2010

    With the majority of the race taking place on the running paths through Millennium Park, the fall colors take a front seat in this one. The race is incredibly well organized and I got to take part in an optional heart study conducted by med students from a local university, which was pretty cool. The long sleeve tee was great and I still wear it often. The main drawback is that since most of the race is on the running path, there aren't a lot of spectators (which is typical of smaller races anyway) and it's a bit tough for your family to watch you run if they aren't so familiar with the area. Other than that, great race and definitely worth the trip for out-of-towners!
