Fall Races and Runs in Chicago

running-chicagoAfter a hot and humid couple of days in downtown Chicago, it’s finally feeling a bit like fall today!  The cooler forecast is set to continue through the weekend with mild weather perfect for picnics in the park or biking or running along the lakefront.  The cooler weather will be especially nice for those doing long runs this weekend as part of Chicago Marathon training.  The Marathon is just over one month away, and there are still many other races and runs taking place in downtown Chicago this fall.  We’ve partnered with many races to offer discounted rates for runners, family, and friends who need a place to stay downtown before or after running.
