Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, Chicago



#BluRoutes are walking, running and cycling routes that start and end at our hotel. They’re planned by our team members to help all exercise enthusiasts, from amateur joggers to keen runners to cyclists of all levels, continue their fitness routine when they travel or simply discover the city from a different angle. Along the way, joggers, walkers and cyclists experience the urban oasis of Lakeshore East Park, the city skyline, Grant Park, the expansive lakefront and many more iconic Chicago locations. Should you choose to stay on property, we offer a 1/5-mile professional running track located on our third-floor outdoor terrace.

  • Route One - 3 miles
    The longest of the three, this scenic route runs both north and south of the Chicago River and will take you along the famed Magnificent Mile, cutting over to Navy Pier, where you can take in the scenic skyline before heading south along the iconic lakefront trails and back up to Michigan Avenue. This path is for the more seasoned runner, offering multiple types of terrain, from city streets to long-distance jogging paths.
  • Route Two - 1.1 miles
    The shortest of the three, this route is the perfect option for a quick run. The path will take you to the beautiful Lakeshore East Park, directly behind the hotel. This route offers views of the beautiful skyline, Aqua building and all that the park has to offer. This route is for the everyday runner, featuring not only flat terrain but multiple stairs at the beginning and end of the path.
  • Route Three - 2.6 miles
    This route offers fantastic views of the city as well as the famous Millennium Park, Cloud Gate, Buckingham Fountain and Grant Park before looping back through the Art Institute of Chicago campus as you head back to the hotel.
