Run Our Wintrust Lakefront 10 Miler & 5K On April 13th!

If you have not raced in awhile, we know it can be hard to convince yourself to get back out there. We promise the Wintrust Lakefront 10 Miler & 5K is a great way to kick off your spring racing season, but here a few more reasons you should register if you need a nudge.

Swag: Participants will receive a tech long sleeve shirt complete with thumb holes and a finisher medal!

The Finish: Be ready for an exciting end to the race. Runners will run an Olympic style finishing lap around the track and into the finish.

Awards: The top three males and females, overall and age-group, in both the 10 Miler and 5K will be awarded custom plaque awards.

Part of the CARA Runners' Choice Circuit: Working toward a Circuit award? Running the Wintrust Lakefront 10 Miler will get you closer to that goal.

App Points: You’ll earn 100 points in the CARA Runs app for attending (which means you’ll be entered to win a Polar Watch!).

Free Photos: You'll remember this spring race forever thanks to the free photos provided. Have your smile ready for the finish line.

We asked a few CARA Ambassadors why they love Lakefront 10 and here’s what they said:

“What I love about the race is the finish; going up Cricket Hill, getting to the top and seeing the track, and using the momentum of coming off the hill to run your sprint victory lap around the track to the finish line. It’s a great way to finish a race!” - Matt Resendiz

“I love climbing Cricket Hill (I know, that's rare). It's the first time that I have run up for the season, and as a bonus you can see the finish line. Lastly, when you hit the running track you've got a burst of energy that makes it the fastest 1/4 mile of the entire race.” - James Irwin

“The lap around the lagoon in Lincoln Park and when you go under LSD to end up back on the Lakefront Path for the final four miles. “ - Lynn Crim

“The victory lap around the track before the finish line! I feel like an Olympian by the end!!” - Lisa Verdon

You’re ready to run with us now, right? Register now at Don’t wait! Our event will sell out. We will see you on April 13th.
