On Sunday, August 31st, women will take over North Michigan Avenue for The MAGNIFICENT MILE® CHICAGO WOMEN’S half marathon and 5k. Not since the 1980's has a run event been staged on the Magnificent Mile and only Mickey Mouse and Oprah have been able to close this famed street for any reason since then. That is, until now - and you can be a part of this amazing event participating with Team Imerman Angels. You pick the distance - either a half marathon or a 5k. Either way, you will be able to do something really fun on one of the most famous streets in the world. And Imerman Angels will pay for your entry!
