Chicago Marathon

Chicago is now one of the biggest marathons in the world and has developed a reputation as also being one of the best marathon experiences anywhere - a 'must do'. With 45,000 runners this is truly a major event and many think the best of the big marathons, as its status as one of the Marathon Majors (along with London, Boston, Berlin, Tokyo and New York) testifies. With a start and finish in Grant Park, on the shores of Lake Michigan, this flat route takes in much of the shoreline, and downtown areas with their massive and distinctive skyscrapers.

What you need to know about Marathons

The marathon is the benchmark for any runner. Its history stretches back to the Ancient Greeks, and it now includes all the world’s most iconic running races. At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?
