The 1K and 5K routes are along the paved
running/biking Lakefront Trail starting near Upper Hutchinson Field. While
there are no vehicles on this trail system, it is open to the public and is
popular with joggers & cyclists. Please be courteous to other runners,
walkers, and cyclists by staying on your right, especially if you are
accompanied by children and/or have strollers. There are two points where
the route crosses the street, so traffic Control Officers will assist
participants at these intersections.
We are better neighbors when we do not block the whole path by
walking 4-5 across, but rather walk in pairs and leave room for other
beach-goers to enjoy the paths as well.
It is also important to pay special attention to the directions
provided by signage and course marshals.
The Tot Trot is approximately 150-200 feet
parking is available on Columbus Drive between Roosevelt and Jackson. Please
pay close attention to any posted signage and make sure to pay for parking at
designated kiosks. In some cases the kiosk may be located further down the
street. Participants are also encouraged to consider public
transportation. There is a CTA stop at Roosevelt (Green/Orange/Red Line). The
event site is about .6 miles from Roosevelt.
