Race Info

Represent Team Northside or Team Southside at the 2013 Crosstown Classic and compete head-to-head in a 10K (6.2 mile) race for bragging rights to say: We Run Chicago!

How it Works

1.) Choose which side you are representing: Team Northside or Team Southside.

2.) From the thousands of participants, the average time from the first 1,000 finishers from each team will be calculated. The team with the fastest overall average time will be declared the winner.

3.) If you don’t plan on finishing in the top 1,000 for your team, don’t think you’re off the hook: Your team needs you to represent!

Please note: The Crosstown Classic 10K is open to all participant levels.
