The Big Ten Network 10k is taking place tomorrow at Soldier Field, and Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is excited to be the official host hotel for runners and spectators! With the personalized t-shirts, school mascots, and tailgate after party, this race is sure to be a good time.
The hotel is just minutes from Soldier Field. Simply walk 2.5 blocks north on Calumet Ave. and take a right at Battle of Ft. Dearborn Park following the signs that read “to lakefront”. The pedway will lead you straight to the main entrance of Soldier Field. Click here for an easy walking map. Total walk time is approximately 10-15 minutes, the perfect pre-race warm-up.
