Shake off the winter cobwebs by going for an 8K run or a 2-mile walk through the Loop at this St. Patrick's Day-themed race. Thousands of participants dress up in green and begin their journey in Grant Park, winding through the Loop before crossing the finish line in the downtown park. If you're willing to brave the chilly temperatures, you'll get a T-shirt, a medal and access to the post-race party, featuring live music and refreshments.

Yes the Shamrock Shuffle is a more expensive race BUT this is only race I've experienced where you run all over the city instead of the usual lakefront path. You also get some sweet gear like an uber cute Saint Patrick's day colored Nike running shirt. If you're looking for an iconic Chicago race but can sweat the marathon, this is the best!
