About Humana Rock n’ Roll Chicago

Humana Rock n’ Roll Chicago is a part of the Rock n’ Roll Marathon series. The series started in 1998 with the simple idea of placing live bands along a marathon course to cheer on participants as they run and has since transformed into a lifestyle. The entertainment combined with the energy of the event are what define the experience, and past performers include some of the biggest names in music such as Macklemore, Goo Goo Dolls, All-American Rejects, Flo-Rida, Train, Lady Antebellum and more. Since it’s inception, runners have raised more than $310 million for participating charities.
