About the 2013 Chicago Marathon

Every year the Bank of America Chicago Marathon brings out the best marathon runners in the world. Thanks to a flat course, and “usually” good weather, Chicago is home to some of the best Marathon times in the books. This 26.2 mile race takes runners north, west, and south through Chicago’s finest neighborhoods, and the sights are just the beginning. At the end of the race, Chicago offers a locally brewed 312 to each runner, (21+ of course) for a post marathon drink/celebration/much needed source of carbs. With over 35,000 runners, coming from hundreds of countries from around the world, the Chicago Marathon is one of the largest in the world.
