Come see Chicago’s best street art with us in this fun 5K Chicago Shakeout Art Run to celebrate Chicago Marathon weekend and see West Town’s best murals. The Art Run is open to everyone - whether you’ll be cheering on the big day or are racing, you’ll love this art-packed fun 5K celebrating Chicago’s best street art. With a guided runner’s mediation led by Vacation of the Mind following the run, to help you relax and prepare for the big race! (Or for your next race, if you are not running Chicago Marathon). Hosted by Chicago Truborn gallery and sponsored by Clif Bar, Getaround and Custom Performance. A portion of ticket proceeds go to Chicago Truborn’s West Town Walls murals.

Join Runstreet on a tour of Chicago’s best street art with this relaxed, 10-minute-mile paced guided 5K run in Chicago’s colorful West Town neighborhood. The run begins and ends at Chicago Truborn, where you can check out incredible local art and grab your marathon fuel and snacks from Clif Bar. A special 30-minute runner’s meditation that will prepare you for your next race will follow the run, let by Briana Bragg of Vacation of the Mind.
