About this Event

10 in 10 Challenge

Chris Smith, founder of the LYD Foundation is sparking change on the South Side. His campaign, the 'Running for Something' raises money to support his foundation's programs such as youth programming, Fresh Food Initiative, mental and physical health programs, Charity of the Month partner giveaways, back to school events (backpacks, supplies) and so much more.

This year, to raise money for the 'Running for Something' campaign, Chris created the idea of the 10 in 10 challenge. So much of his foundation relies on outreach to students, and to mimic the school year, Chris decided to run a marathon once a month from September to June.

Fleet Feet and New Balance is partnering with Chris for his May marathon. Come cheer Chris on, and join him for the last few miles of his run. Runners can demo the lastest shoes from New Balance while supporting Chris in his mission.

This in-person event will take place at Fleet Feet South Loop.
