Happy Birthday to the King!

Elvis Presley, born January 8, 1935, beloved American singer, musician, and actor – it’s no secret he’s still, to this day, regarded as one of the 20th Century’s biggest cultural icons and the King of Rock and Roll.

The King himself first made his Chicago appearance in March 1957 at the International Amphitheater, when tickets cost just between $2.00 and $3.50. His final Chicago performance would be 20 years later, in May 1977, where he was booked for two straight nights at Chicago Stadium.

In tribute to this Rock ‘n’ Roll icon’s birthday, we’ve compiled a glimpse at all of our “Running Elvi” over the years. What better way to honor the King than to grab your best Elvis-inspired outfit and run the streets of Chicago with us this July?

You’re bound to be in good company.
