Come be a part of MY race.
You won't want to miss out on the FIRST PENGUIN medal.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEDAL This year, every 20K finisher will receive a BIG, HONKIN' Penguin medal. Why not? A 20K is just ONE little kilometer short of a 1/2 marathon. You DESERVE a medal for running that far. After you run a flat and fast course with 12 fluid stations there'll be a ROCKIN' DJ and refreshments at the finish line.
A RACE FOR EVERYONE We want every participant in the Chicago Distance Classic to know that our #1 priority is giving them a safe race where they can do THEIR best. We'll have self-seeded corrals for the speed demons and "Balloon Cuties" at the back so that NO ONE finishes last. Clydesdale runners can compete against others in their weight class.
UPGRADE TO A TECHNICAL T-SHIRT Got enough cotton T-shirts? Participants can upgrade to the CDC Technical Tee for only $10 (if you register online). This is a performance "cool-max" Tee and is a $30 value.
