The 11th annual Fort2Base Race will take place on Sunday August 28, 2022 in North Chicago, Illinois.  North Chicago is conveniently located about 45 minutes north of Chicago and 45 minutes south of Milwaukee.

There are two event distances, 10 Nautical Miles and 3 Nautical Miles (11.5 and 3.45 miles respectively).  The unique event distances are a nod to Naval Station Great Lakes, home to the only boot camp for the US Navy.  The 10 Nautical Mile event begins at Fort Sheridan.  Today fort Sheridan is an Army reserve installation, but during World War II over 500,000 men and women were processed there. Athletes continue through Fort Sheridan past George Patton’s home to the McClory Bike Path, past Naval Station Great Lakes and finish at Foss Park. 

The 3 Nautical Mile course begins and finishes at Foss Park, while passing by Naval Station Great Lakes.

Fort2Base was founded to honor the men and women who serve and have served our country.

Fort2Base proudly supports Headstrong.  Headstrong provides at no expense, confidential and stigma-free mental health treatment for military members, veterans and their families regardless of service era or discharge.  Participants are able to support this great cause by making a donation through registration or by running for a reason and raising funds.  100% of the funds raised or donated go directly to Headstrong.
