Competitors gathered at Soldier Field for a ten mile race across the city while swinging from monkey bars, high-stepping through tires and sprinting stadium steps.

The racers also jump over cabs, climb a city bus and scale an eight-foot wall before reaching the finish line.

After the competition there was a well-deserved post-race party.
