Spirit Squads Announced
Come out and cheer on runners at the 5th Annual Naperville Half Marathon as part of a Team IPEF Spirit Squad.
18 schools have signed up to host 2017 Spirit Squads on Sunday, October 22, 2017, and will be competing to win additional funds for their school.
Participating schools are listed below with their approximate location on the race route. Some Spirit Squads will have the chance to cheer for runners multiple times during the race as runners will pass them more than once. Download the race map for a look at the entire 13.1 mile course.
