The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is one of the best and fastest in the world and the city itself is full of life – one of America’s greatest. On the course which, in 2019, saw the women’s world marathon record come plummeting down, 45,000 runners line up each year to take part. There is huge crowd support around the course, with marathon fans cheering every runner, on every corner of the route. To add to the atmosphere there will be live bands along the route. The Chicago Marathon is one of the six World Marathon Majors. Sports Travel International offers guaranteed entry with a hotel package.
