How are you preparing for the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon? Will event attendees be required to adhere to the coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines put in place for the 2021 event?
Event organizers are working with the City of Chicago, including the Chicago Department of Public Health, to provide a safe and enjoyable race weekend experience for all event attendees. Event guidance and/or requirements will be in line with local and state coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines. We recognize guidance is likely to change between now and the 2022 race. For this reason, like 2021, the event will provide specific guidelines to registered participants in the lead-up to race weekend.
What is the anticipated field size for the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon?
At this time, we are preparing for a field size of 40,000 participants. Providing a safe and enjoyable race weekend experience for event attendees and the Chicago community is our top priority. We are prepared to make adjustments to the field size, if necessary, to align with guidance from public health officials.
What are my options if I sign up and can’t participate?
As in the past, registered participants will have the opportunity to cancel their entry and access a guaranteed entry for the next event. All event fees (entry, ancillary products, etc.) are non-refundable and will not be applied to future participation. Participants who select this option must complete the 2023 application process and pay the 2023 entry fee in order to redeem their guaranteed entry. Please note, this opportunity will not be available to participants who received a guaranteed entry through the charity or tour group applications.
Participants who deferred their 2020 place and entry fee as part of the 2020 event cancellation will be eligible to cancel their 2022 entry and access a guaranteed entry for the 2023 event. Participants who select this option must complete the 2022 application process and pay the 2022 entry fee in order to redeem their guaranteed entry.
Individuals will also have the option to purchase refundable bookings during the application process.
Are participants going to be required to pick up their race materials in person?
Yes. As in the past, registered participants will be required to pick up their own items in person in advance of the event.
Does the Bank of America Chicago Marathon have a recommended training plan?
Yes. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon offers an official 18-week training program developed by Nike Coaches. The program is made to be adaptive to all runners and customized to fit in with your daily schedule and needs.
