Now that it is finally the summer, you and your friends may be looking for ways to take advantage of the beautiful weather while exercising. With no more snow on the ground and the sun shining brightly, you probably want to get outside and do something physical! Chicago offers so many great places to go for a jog or even to take a nice stroll with a pet or with a friend. I see people all the time playing beach volleyball, doing yoga on the beach, or running in the park – it’s all about doing something physical, no matter what that may be!
A great way to take advantage of Chicago’s gorgeous scenery is with the ZOOMA Chicago event on Saturday, August 10th. ZOOMA Chicago is a fitness event only for women that consists of a weekend of running and “serious celebration,” including cocktail hours, film screenings, yoga, and more. Participants can choose between a half marathon and a 10k. During the runs, you will be able to see magnificent views of the Chicago skyline, with the start and finish at Montrose Harbor.
The course is relatively flat and will provide racers with the opportunity to observe their scenic surroundings as they run. After women complete their races, there will be wine, massages, shopping, swimming, and live music all at the lakefront park of the harbor. Participants will also receive a “ZOOMA Signature Swag Bag” that includes a t-shirt, yoga mat, reusable bag, and water bottle, as well as performance drinks from Cytomax Sports Performance and Muscle Milk, wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, and a necklace from Satya Jewelry designed exclusively for the race.
If you and your ladies are looking for a new and exciting way to exercise and make the most of this Chicago summer, the ZOOMA Chicago event is a great opportunity to do so! For more information about the event, please visit http://zoomarun.com/chicago/.
