FOUR MILE CLASSIC
**THE 2023 USOLE 4 MILE CLASSIC**
**CELEBRATING OUR 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY**
The Universal Sole Four Mile classic is back, Thursday night, May 11, 2023! Chicago's only four mile race will have a familiar look for 2023. We are excited to be back in the city again and at one of our favorite places, Montrose Harbor. We invite you all to join us as we kick off the summer season of racing!
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.
BRING OLD RUNNING SHOES OUT TO THE RACE TO RECYCLE!
Reduce Waste Chicago -- They help Chicagoan's reduce their waste output through reusing, repairing and recycling. They work with organizations across the city to host Reuse & Recycle Pop-Up events, where residents can drop off materials from our accepted items list that are not accepted by the city’s Blue Cart program. RWC distributes items to other organizations, local nonprofits, artists groups and recycling companies – all of which improves landfill diversion. Reduce Waste Chicago will be out at the Four Mile Classic accepting running shoes for recycling and have Block Bins out for composting. For more information, click here.

Post Race - Brews & Fun!
A post race party will follow the USOLE Four Mile Classic at a one of our favorite running hang outs, Bitter Pops Bottle Shoppe (3357 N. Lincoln Ave). We will have a post race bash to toast our race returning to Chicago and celebrate post USOLE Four Mile Classic.

Bitter Pops will also keep the kitchen open for those folks looking to get a bite to eat at the post race party. We will host our raffle as well at Bitter Pops throughout the evening.
