Registration for Humana Race to Taste Opens February 12!
18th Annual Race to Taste 5K Run/2-Mile Walk
Sunday, June 27 in Grant Park

Ready, set, race … your way to the Taste of Chicago. Humana Race to Taste 5K Run/2-Mile Walk is a Taste of Chicago tradition and is set for Sunday, June 27. Run/walk through Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park and lakefront, and stay for activities and great food at Taste of Chicago.

Registration for this annual event is available on-line beginning Friday, February 12 at www.chicagoracetotaste.us and is $35 per participant. There is no race day registration. The 5K Run/2-mile Walk will begin at 8:00 am at the corner of Balbo and Columbus and will be timed on d-chip. All participants will receive a commemorative NIKE Dri-FIT t-shirt in both men’s and women’s sizes. Also receive a complimentary strip of Taste tickets to enjoy the entire festival!

As the Taste celebrates its 30th year, Humana is pleased to extend their Taste of Chicago partnership to include the Race to the Taste. Humana has had a presence at the Taste since 2007, when it first introduced its Healthier Choices map that features lighter food options available during the festival. Humana believes it’s important to highlight the healthy side of the Taste, and the Humana Race to the Taste and Healthier Choices map provide Taste-goers with the chance to have fun and stay fit.

Race to Taste is presented by Humana, Hinckley Springs, Chicago Tribune, NIKE, United Airlines, Pepsi-Cola, Fleet Feet Sports, Domincks, Communications Direct, Chicago Transit Authority and Apple Vacations. For updates visit www.chicagoracetotaste.us and on Facebook, the Taste of Chicago page.

I’ve been to the official site and called the #…there seems to be no way to register, even though registration has “supposedly” opened. The phone number had me bouncing from person to person with no one knowing anything about it. What a cluster!

It’s now the 15th, and still no online registration is available. This is ridiculous!

I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one with problems. I had tried registering the morning of the 12th, and it said it was already closed… A little strange, to say the least.

Sorry about the registration problems everyone. I have sent a message to the Mayor’s Office of Special Events and will hopefully have answers shortly. I will let you know the minute I hear something.
