Industrial and capital of modern architecture, Chicago beautifully located along the shore of one of the world's largest lake. Run in the shadow enjoying the incredible prespectives of the sky train, discover the quiet charm of the riverwalk at the foot of downtown's skyscrapers, enjoy the shores of the lake, or the view of the city's skyline from the Navy Pier, before running on a bridge created by the famous Franck Gehry, heading to the incredible giant bean shaped sculpture in which the entire city seems to be reflected ... Running in Chicago is an imperishable memory...
*Alternative route : you can either run the whole tour (8 shape), either one of the loops (north or south) / you can also add the Navy Pier to your run (+1.9km) for views on the city from the lake
You'll be able to select between different distances during your run.
NB : if you are unsure, check your position on the map and the track.
