Our Story

Participants have a choice of two distances, a 10 nautical mile (11.5 miles) and a 3 nautical mile (3.45 miles) distance. The 10 nautical mile event is a point to point race, which begins at historic Fort Sheridan (Army) and ends at Foss Park, just North of Naval Station Great Lakes. The 3 nautical mile event takes place on the McClory Bike Path and ends at Foss Park, just North of Naval Station Great Lakes. Both courses offer runners a unique glimpse into beautiful scenic vistas of the North Shore as well as the magnificence of Illinois’ great military encampments. Directly following the races, participants and their families along with sponsors and community partners are invited to partake in an array of activities and festivities in the finish area at Foss Park.

Thank you to Beth and all the volunteers for a safe and well organized race.
Congratulations to all the participants! My Sistars and I had a blast volunteering and so did our daughters.
Had a great 4th of July
Sporting the gear! #fort2base
Is there a special rate at the hotel again this year? That was really convenient to be able to pick up my packet there the night before and not have to drive 2hrs to the starting line. And to be able to shower before driving home :-)
