  • After finishing, you have to take a shuttle back to the start area, and that can get a bit disorganized. Be ready to wait after finishing this great race.
  • Broke 4 hours for the first time on this course! Flat, fast and mild weather, perfect for running.
  • I did this in 2015 and actually ate a piece of cake during my run! Not many marathons hand out cake to runners.

  • Even in early October, the weather in Chicago can be too hot to run fast enough for a PR.
  • Nice and flat, this marathon is the closest experience to running on a track.
  • The city’s wide streets allow runners to get into their PR pace with plenty of space.
