RUN THE CHICAGO MARATHON WITH TEAM CHI PARKS!
The Chicago Parks Foundation is proud to serve as a partner charity of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Since 2014, Team ChiParks has raised $550,000+ in support of our city’s parks and the communities who love them.
Without Chicago's 600+ parks and 26 miles of Lakefront Trail, where would you run? Thousands of runners from across the globe choose to make their Chicago Marathon experience more meaningful by running on behalf of a charity. Join us.
