Spring is an exciting time for a Chicago runner. The days grow longer, the lakefront path comes to life, and the local calendar fills with spectacular world-class races.

Chicago Endurance Sports Spring Training Soldier Field 10 Mile Program is an all encompassing training program that will prepare you for the Soldier Field 10 Mile, and give you an excellent base for any of your summer running goals.
A team of more than 30 Chicago Endurance Sports coaches with years of experience give participants hands-on guidance through a customized 12-week training program featuring group runs twice a week while the Chicago Endurance Sports Pacers and Mentors provide assistance during weekly long runs to make sure participants follow their prescribed workouts at the right pace.
Participants follow a program tailed to your current fitness level preparing them to succeed at distances up to a half marathon (see the suggested races listed below). The mileage progression is perfect for those planning to race the Shamrock Shuffle 8K in the midst of this training. Coaches are available daily via e-mail to answer specific questions or adjust training schedules to fit specific needs.
