Mudder Nation is coming to Chicago. Get the best of nature and city life with these side adventures. These are the Tough Mudder recommended Chicago things to do.
5 Top Chicago Things To Do
- Hike At Blackhawk Springs Forest Preserve
Just 15 minutes from Rockford Airport, where you’ll be tearing it up in the mud, lies the Blackhawk Springs Forest Preserve. This beginner-friendly trailhead is the ideal low-impact activity that gets you outside and refreshed after a tough mud day.
- Take a Chicago Food Tour
Secret Food Tours is the tasty hidden gem that takes you into the heart of Chicago cuisine. You know you’ve got to get a slice of deep-dish pizza – why not take it further with everything the city has to offer?
- Go to A White Sox Game
Stick around for a rousing White Sox game at historic Wrigley Field. The Sox face off against the Arizona Diamondbacks throughout Tough Mudder weekend. Get tickets here.
- Kayak on the Chicago River
That’s right – look no further than downtown Chicago for a day on the water with Wateriders. You can’t beat a crowd-free moment while getting up close and personal with Chicago’s historic architecture.
- Take A Stroll In Lincoln Park
Lincoln Park’s sprawling campus is so lush you won’t believe you’re in the city. Within its parameters are two museums, a free public zoo, plenty of public art and monuments, the national arboretum, recreational fields and so much more.
Let’s get wild – Tough Mudder will be here before you know on August 27th & 28th, so book your spot before the event sells out.
