Please note that a 15 minute mile pace or faster is required for the race. A 15 min. mile pace is roughly four miles per hour, equivalent to a very brisk walk. If you fall below this pace, the race organizers can no longer guarantee course support. Aid Stations, medical support, portable toilets, and road closures will begin to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course, or move up onto the sidewalk where you will be required to obey regular traffic laws.
The Soldier Field 10 Mile course highlights the city’s biggest attractions. We hold our races to the highest quality standards, from start to finish, course design and accuracy, emergency medical plans that exceed industry standards all in the name of your safety. Along those lines, all RAM Racing events have a USATF-certified course with a distance that has been certified for accuracy. Please note that although we’ll try our best to avoid it, the course and start time is subject to change.
The Soldier Field 10 Mile has been selected to be part of the 2019 CARA Runners’ Choice Circuit by the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA). CARA members annually select many of their favorite races to be included on the CARA Runners’ Choice Circuit, a collection of 15 races across the city and suburbs. The CARA Runners’ Choice Circuit promotes participation in local races, provides a competitive structure for area runners, and has long been a source of camaraderie for local runners, and within and between local running clubs.
