Winter in Chicago brings frigid temps, cold and flu season, football, sleet, snow, and for some, the F^3 Lake Half Marathon & 5K, presented by Physicians Immediate Care. While most Chicagoans are wrapped up in multiple layers of clothes, huddled under warm blankets, or staying toasty near a fireplace, a group of dedicated runners, adventurers, and athletes ditch the warmth and head to Soldier Field to conquer the F^3 Lake Half Marathon & 5K. Both races start and end just outside of Soldier Field, and the course takes runners on a scenic path along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront. (Yes, it’s even more beautiful when the water turns to ice!)
Now in its 10th year, the event has become a rite of passage for many avid runners. Not only do you get a finisher’s medal for completing the race, but you’ll also get the far more valuable bragging rights for having run outdoors while everything else around is dormant.
Physicians Immediate Care has been a proud partner of the F^3 Half Marathon for the past 6 years, supporting the race with volunteer first aid staff on the course, supplying hot cocoa to runners crossing the finish line, and sharing the joy of running: several team members at Physicians Immediate Care have also crossed the finish line.
In 2019, Physicians Immediate Care is the presenting sponsor, and we’ll be there cheering on each and every runner. Whether you are planning to set a personal record, completing your first half marathon, or running your first ever 5K, Physicians Immediate Care salutes you for your hard work and dedication. If you are planning to run or will be there to cheer on a family member or friend, be sure to stop by the Physicians Immediate Care welcome tents and say hello to our team, grab some free prizes, and take a couple of fun photos at the Physicians Immediate Care Photo Booth, located inside the Cadillac Club at Soldier Field on the day of the race. Unlimited souvenir photo strips will be available to all runners, participants and spectators. We look forward to seeing everyone for the F^3 Lake Half Marathon & 5K.
