FOUR MILE CLASSIC
**THE 2021 USOLE 4 MILE CLASSIC**
The Universal Sole Four Mile classic is back (May 15th, 2021)! Chicago's only four mile race will have a new look for 2021 as we will head to a new location and bring this early summer road race favorite safely and responsibly back to an in-person race. We are excited to get back on the roads and host our annual kickoff race to summer, the USOLE Four Mile Classic. We will follow all COVID-19 safety protocols that we have had in place for our other races and bring back to you one of our most popular USOLE races. Join us as we come into our 9th year of Four Mile Classic!
Race Beneficiary: Chicago Run -- Chicago Run is a nonprofit organization that provides young people from Pre-K through high school with inclusive running and physical activity programs. They empower young people with equitable access to physical activity and use running as a catalyst to transform lives. Through the power of sport, they build resilience to stress and trauma and develop social and emotional skills. Programming is primarily focused in under-resourced communities with limited access to physical activity and play.
