Medical Volunteer Program
The Bank of America Chicago Marathon, now in its 37th year, is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious road-racing events and host to 45,000 registered participants annually. From world-class athletes to recreational runners, participants travel from every corner of the globe to take on the challenge of running 26.2 miles through the streets of Chicago.
The Medical Volunteer Program, led by Bank of America Chicago Marathon Medical Director, Dr. George Chiampas, prides itself on its industry-leading staff and on-site services. Medical volunteers are essential to the production of this race, and in 2013, over 1,200 dedicated individuals volunteered to provide medical support and assistance throughout all areas of the race.
