Join Team DetermiNation to have GUARANTEED ENTRY to the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. The Chicago Marathon will have a lottery registration between March 19 - April 7 on the marathon website. If you wish to have GUARANTEED ENTRY and bypass the lottery, you can join our team today at a reduced fundraising minimum of $1,000. Once you join our team, your staff partner will contact you and explain how to commit to the fundraising and secure your entry (participants are required to pay the $185 marathon entry fee).
Once the lottery closes there will be limited post close entries available at a higher fundraising minimum. These entries will go fast so join our team today and help us finish the fight against cancer. DetermiNation participants receive FREE training and VIP amenities on race weekend. Whether you are training for your first, or best, marathon we can help you cross the finish line!
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.
