Walking/Running Routes at UIC

Are you ready to go walking or running?

You can start these routes at a UIC Campus Recreation location and see some of the great sites Chicago has to offer.

The routes range from just over 1 mile to 5 mile paths.   The routes are generally flat and are on sidewalks and are loop.

Walking/Running Safety Tips:

  • Try not to bring valuables/phones or keep them hidden from view
  • Try to not use headphones, but if you must, keep the volume low so you are still aware of your surroundings
  • Obey traffic signals and watch for bicyclists
  • Try to stay on well-lit paths/routes
  • Trust your gut instincts-if you do not feel safe, change your route
  • UIC campus has emergency buttons throughout campus—be aware of those locations
  • Leave a note for your roommate for your running path and the time you expect to be back
  •  Wear reflective clothing when running in the early morning or evening
  • Carry some cash or your Ventra card in case you need to have an alternative to get home
  • Know areas where you can stop at a water fountain or for a restroom
