2018 Chicago Spring Half Marathon

Disclaimer: I received free entry to 2018 Chicago Spring 10K race as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

I decided to add another fun run to my year of races and when this opportunity came up, I couldn’t pass it up!  The Chicago Spring Half Marathon is part of a series of runs in Chicago with a spring and a fall race and a special 26.2 medal when you do both and is limited to the first 2000 runners!
