Have you ever considered that if the Chicago River was not reversed, then the city might not exist today? In 1900, the Chicago River was permanently reversed to stop the ongoing epidemics of cholera and typhoid. By making the river flow in the opposite direction, the engineers were able to protect Chicago’s precious water supply from contamination.

This running tour will teach you more about the Chicago River and its amazing history. Your talented guide will share stories of hardship, bravery and survival while you enjoy the scenery.

Note: Kids 12 and under are free.
