Southwest Half Marathon & 10k - Sunday, May 7, 2017
The Southwest Half Marathon & 10K is one of the Midwest's finest events of its kind. From world class runners to physically challenged athletes who will compete in the Walk, Run or Roll competition, the Half Marathon offers an extremely fast, flat course with chip timing, 5-year age group awards, $10,000 in cash prizes and commemorative medals for all finishers. In contrast to many big-city runs, the Southwest Half Marathon & 10K is truly a "green" race. The flat, fast course has only three turns, taking runners through Palos Heights, Palos Park and the Cook County Forest Preserves.
