Quick Animation Final - Chicago Marathon

It's not too late to join our team for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon!!  If you have your own entry to the marathon, you can make your miles more meaningful by raising money to help us finish the fight.  If you would like to receive the full team benefits of training and race weekend amenities, the fundraising minimum is $1,000.  If you do not wish to receive these benefits, you can join our team without a fundraising minimum (you must have your own race entry for this option).  

Post-lottery entries are no longer available. If you need an entry for the Chicago Marathon please visit their charity website for a list of charities that still have entries available.    

There is no half marathon option for this event.  If you are interested in running a half marathon please consider joining us for the Chicago Half Marathon or Naperville Half Marathon

When you join the American Cancer Society DetermiNation endurance event program, you join our nationwide community of athletes and get the best localized support, training, and fundraising tools to help you achieve your personal victory. Every mile of training will be more meaningful and on race day you’ll have the extra motivation you need knowing you’re helping save lives from all types of cancer.
