The race that's held over Memorial Day Weekend and at Soldier Field has veteran spirit written all over it, so it's only appropriate that this Chicago favorite starts registration on Veteran's Day. Plus it's perfect to get a jump-start to next season whether it's a goal to increase mileage, try a race you've been out of town for before, aim for a PR at the 10-mile distance, you name it. My running mind is excited because I could only watch the 2011 Soldier Field 10, my legs being in no shape to run or even walk the shorter Hut-Hut Hike, let alone 10 miles, even though my mind was ready to go.
Quick details on the race:
- Runners finish on the 50-yard line at Soldier Field
- The race will be held Saturday, May 26.
- The course runs along the Lakefront
- Finishers receive a medal and special commemorative item, in 2011 it was an awesome stadium blanket.
