Chicago is now one of the biggest marathons in the World and has developed a reputation as also being one of the best marathon experiences anywhere.  Part of the Marathon Majors, it is a must do marathon,  and Chicago is a magnificent city to spend a weekend. It is the home of the Blues and superb shopping on Michigan Avenue all from our fantastic and historic hotel base at the superb 5-star Drake Hotel, located right on the Magnificent Mile.

Chicago is now one of the biggest marathons in the World and has developed a reputation as also being one of the best marathon experiences anywhere.  Part of the Marathon Majors, it is a must do marathon,  and Chicago is a magnificent city to spend a weekend. It is the home of the Blues and superb shopping on Michigan Avenue all from our fantastic and historic hotel base at the superb 5-star Drake Hotel, located right on the Magnificent Mile.

Demand for 2019 is already very high with runners adding to their collection of Abbott World Marathon Majors, and from the TV coverage of Mo Farah winning in a UK and European record of 2:05. 

The Race 

With a start and finish in the wide spaces of Grant Park on the shores of Lake Michigan - this is where President Obama made his first speech after being elected as President - the space means logistics are easy.

With 45,000 runners this is truly a major event and many think the best of the big marathons as its status as one of the Marathon Majors (along with London, Boston, Berlin, Tokyo and New York) testifies.  

The route takes in much of the shoreline and the downtown areas with their massive and distinctive skyscrapers, such as the Sears Building on the Magnificent Mile. It is very flat with just a rise on a slip road as you go up and over a highway for the turn towards the finish.
