 The Urbanathlon isn’t your typical road race or weekend warrior fun run. With a 10+ mile run and 10 obstacles, it not only takes endurance to finish, but also agility, power, strength, flexibility, balance and coordination. Not quite up for the entire distance? The Urbanathlon offers a relay option. Relay teams consist of three team members where each member runs approximately one-third of the race.

The Chicago course is a total of 10.8 miles, beginning at Soldier Field and continuing north along Lake Shore Drive past city landmarks including Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park, Millennium Park, Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. On the way you’ll be swinging from monkey bars, high-stepping through tires and sprinting up stadium steps. As you approach the finish line, gear up to jump over taxis, climb a city bus and tackle an eight-foot wall before you can claim victory. Once you cross the finish line celebrate at the post-race festival featuring live DJs, food, drinks and tons of gear from the sponsors. Additional information can be found by visiting www.MHURB.com.
