It was a day of picture-perfect sunshine and scenery for the 16th Annual Chicago Half-Marathon.

The 13-mile lakefront race started and finished in Jackson Park.

This year's half-marathon was held in conjunction with the Hyundai Hope on Wheels 5K, which raises money to support childhood cancer research.
