Road Closures to Expect For Bank of America Chicago 13.1 Race

Thousands of runners are gearing up to hit the streets for the Bank of America Chicago 13.1 race on Sunday, June 4.

Beginning at 7 a.m., the route covers the city’s Humboldt Park, Garfield Park, and Douglas Park neighborhoods. It spans a full distance of 13.1 miles. A race-day festival will kick off at 8 a.m. in Garfield Park, where participants can celebrate while watching local talent perform.

With only days left until the race, road closures are soon to be in effect on the West side.

No parking zones will be enforced starting at 1 a.m. on Sunday, while street closures will begin later in the morning.

According to organizers, street closures along the route begin at 6 a.m. and continue through 10:45 a.m., reopening “as the final runners pass through.”

“We are working with the City of Chicago to ensure street closures follow a rolling pattern, so that as the final runners pass through, the streets will reopen to allow traffic to return to normal as quickly as possible,” the race’s website reads.
