Bank of America Chicago Marathon runners

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is extremely grateful for the tremendous support it receives from the communities that comprise its course each year. Thanks to the many years of assistance from the neighborhoods that make up the Chicago Marathon’s world-class course, the race now annually attracts thousands of runners from around the world and 1.7 million spectators.

On race day, runners are treated to a 26.2-mile tour of diverse cultures, historic buildings and residences, renowned architecture, vibrant murals and the mouth-watering scents of some of the best dining in the world. Chicago is a city of neighborhoods and we are proud to call these the 29 neighborhood partners of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
