About This Activity

The 1st annual Truck It 5K/10K will take place at the Stadium Green located at the southeast corner of Soldier Field.

Both the 5K and 10K will start at 6:30pm. The course starts and finishes on the lakefront path just south of Waldron and heads south along the lakefront running past McCormick Place, the Fireman’s Memorial, the new 31st Marina.

The course is out and back with beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline.

If not a runner you are welcome to walk any distance that is comfortable. If walking less than a 5K or 10K please don’t wear the timing chip so results are not affected.

Truck It 5K/10K is a full evening of entertainment. Live music will greet participants when they return to the Stadium Green. Enjoy a complimentary beer and then pick from a wide selection of food being offered by the best local food trucks. Food and beer will be available for purchase throughout the evening to participants and their guests.

Each registered participant will receive a long sleeve quarter zip pullover. This comfortable lightweight pullover is perfect for cool evenings or wear with a shirt underneath in cold weather. Perfect for running or just hanging out.
