Get your miles in while a guide leads you through spectacular city sites.

Back to Previous Page

Got an active group? Let them get their miles in on a city running tour, where a professional guide will lead them through spectacular city sites, share fascinating stores and fill them in on Chicago’s hot spots.

No other city in the world has what Chicago has: A 5k every day. There are three of these 5k running tours to choose from, each one focusing on a unique characteristic of the city itself:

  • Chicago River / Navy Pier 5k
    When: Tuesdays and Fridays
    Begin: The "Bean"
    End: The "Bean"
    Groups learn about the surprising history of the Chicago River, from how it was once used to how it transformed into what we see today.
  • Chicago Tragic Events 5k
    When: Wednesdays and Saturdays
    Begin: The "Bean"
    End: The Bridge House Museum (Michigan Ave. and Wacker Dr.)
    One of the most popular group tours, this route includes the locations of five tragic events that occurred during the city's early history: the Fort Dearborn massacre, the Great Chicago Fire, the Iroquois Theatre Fire, the Eastland Disaster and the Wingfoot Dirigible.
  • Grant Park 5k
    When: Thursdays and Sundays
    Begin: The "Bean"
    End: The "Bean"
    This run begins in Millennium Park and meanders through various parts of Grant Park, including the Rose Gardens, Buckingham Fountain and, of course, the "Bean."

Note: Monday 5ks are by request only.

Weekday tours begin at 7:15am.
Weekend tours begin at 8am.

The pace is casual and conversational, so no one in your group has to worry about being left behind. Plus, each route has multiple stops, giving everyone plenty of time to catch up.

For groups over 10 people, a second guide is brought in for support. City Running Tours has hosted running tours for groups as large as 50 people, so contact them directly for more information: Call 877-415-0058 or email marlin@cityrunningtours.com.
