The Bank of America Chicago Marathon usually starts and finishes in Chicago’s Grant Park.

Known for its fast and flat course, the Chicago Marathon attracts some of the greatest runners around the world. In 2010 Sammy Wanjiru (KEN) defended his North American record victory at the 2009 Bank of America Chicago Marathon with another impressive time of 2:06:24 beating 2010 Virgin London Marathon champion Tsegaye Kebede and 2010 Boston Marathon champion Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot.

In fact, seldom does the BBC cover an entire marathon outside of London or the major championships and the fact that they choose Chicago for the honour underlines that they expect something special from the event. They certainly got it in 2002, with Paula Radcliffe's sensational World best of 2.17.18.

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon has the highest percentage of female runners of all the Marthon majors, with over 43% of runners being women in 2009. This certainly makes it a more friendly environment for women.

In 2012, the race winner was Tsegaye Kebede again setting a new course record of 2.04.38.

In addition to its speed, the course offers a scenic tour of Chicago as it weaves through 29 diverse neighborhoods and dozens of local and historic landmarks. You are guaranteed to see all that is great about the city of Chicago.
