The Chicago Marathon is known worldwide for its fast, flat course and its thrilling world-class athlete competition. Marathon Tours & Travel offers low rates at properties located less than one mile from the start/finish area in Grant Park.
One of the Abbott World Marathon Majors, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon is a great choice if you want to chase after a personal record or simply finish your first marathon. Packed with spectators, the scenic course will take you past many historic landmarks and through numerous diverse neighborhoods including colorful Old Town, Little Italy and Chinatown.
Come for the run but take advantage of all that Chicago has to offer. Many of the city’s attractions are conveniently located within walking distance of one another including the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and the Museum of Science and Industry located at Chicago’s lakefront Museum Campus. Visit Navy Pier, stroll (or run) along the pedestrian pathway that stretches for miles along Lake Michigan and shop the Magnificent Mile along Michigan Avenue.
I wanted to thank you for all you did to set up the extra hotel for Chicago - it was OUTSTANDING! Definitely keep the JW Marriott on your list for next year, it was extremely comfortable, quiet, and luxurious. Thank you for you all of your help and I look forward to NY!
