The Nike Northside/Southside Challenge is coming up again this weekend during the Chicago Marathon.
This will be our third time out and it's looking to be another great one.
Nike and the Bank of America Chicago Marathon are inspiring the next generation to run in the footsteps of their running heroes. The Nike Northside/Southside Challenge gives high school athletes the unique opportunity to compete in an invitational meet on the Chicago Marathon course while the race is in progress. Athletes will compete on behalf of their respective high schools and as part of the larger Northside or Southside teams. The race starts at approximately Mile 24 where boys and girls will compete over the last 2.62 miles of the course ending at the Chicago Marathon finish line in Grant Park. Boys start at 7:40 a.m. and girls at 7:50 a.m.
