Join us for Chicago's first iconic 5K Walk and Run celebrating the legacy of Italian Beef in Chicago. Some like it hot and choose a 5K run with an intense pepper filled beef while others take a milder approach with a dipped walk along Chicago's lakefront.
Any way you slice-it, the CHItalian Beef 5K delivers a scenic walk/run and delectable beef sandwiches from iconic Al's and Buona and Al's Beef. All participants receive a dri-fit race shirt, a taste of Chicago's iconic beef, timed race bib and a beef inspired race medal.
