Chicago Marathon 2011

The date has been set for the Chicago Marathon 2011 as October 9th.

Yesterday the Bank of America Chicago Marathon announced that registration will open on February 1st. This year the race will be $145 for U.S. runners and $17o for international runners and will be open to the first 45,000 registrants.

This year two dollars from each entry will go directly to benefit Chicago youth running programs, and Bank of America has pledged to make a dollar-for-dollar match for Chicago youth fitness programs.

This race sold out in a record 45 days last year, so mark your calenders and plan to sign up early. I know I will after not jumping on the registration wagon early enough for the Boston Marathon this year, which sold out in an amazing 8 hours.
