UPDATE: Application deadline for guaranteed entry into the Bank of America Chicago Marathon has been extended to June 30, 2020.
The Big Shoulders Fund Racing Team is set out to break records (we’re talking personal bests) and change children’s lives. Last year, our racing team ran both the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon, raising more than $100,000.
When you run with Big Shoulders, you’re not alone. We provide the support you need to make your fundraising goal and prepare you to run your best race possible.
