Participant cancellation (cancellation by you)

Participants unable to participate in the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon can cancel their entry at any time through their participant account. While all event fees (entry, ancillary products, etc.) are non-refundable, and will not be applied to a future event, participants who cancel their entry will have access to a guaranteed entry for the next event. Please note, this opportunity is not available to participants who received a guaranteed entry for the 2022 event through the charity or tour group applications.


Refundable registration

Individuals who are concerned they may not be able to participate in the 2022 event can pay an additional service fee (14% of all items purchased, excluding event processing fees) for a 100% refund of the entry fee and additional products paid by the participant during the registration process. Registered participants, who purchased refundable registration, and are unable to participate in the race (for one of the wide range of perils covered) must apply to receive a 100% refund of their entry fee and ancillary purchases. An update on the application should be received within 10 business days of the application submission.* Please note, refundable registration is not eligible to participants whose entry will be paid for by a charity, tour sponsor partner.
