Part of the Marathon Majors, Chicago is now one of the biggest marathons in the world. With its wide flat roads, boisterous crowds and city centre start/finish area it has also developed a reputation as being one of the best marathon running experiences anywhere. Chicago itself is also a magnificent city to spend a weekend, it is the home of the Blues and superb shopping on Michigan Avenue. All are accessible from our fantastic and historic hotel base, the superb 4-star Drake Hotel, located right on the Magnificent Mile.

As the 2020 event was cancelled due to the Covid Pandemic many of our runners chose to defer their entries which means we have only a limited number of places remaining for 2021. While there are no guarantees about any travel in 2021, the positive news about the roll out of the vaccination programme in the UK and USA gives us confidence that Chicago and other autumn Marathon Majors will go ahead as planned. 

If Covid restrictions remain in place and the event cannot go ahead your deposit is fully refundable or can be deferred to a future year at the same prices. Furthermore we will not ask you to pay the balance of the booking until we are certain the trip will go ahaed. 

 

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 race logistics of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon are very 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.
