By joining Team Girls on the Run you will be able to secure your spot for the 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on 10/11/15. Race registration is not open to the public yet, but if  you complete this form then you will have the opportunity to fill one of our charity entries before we open the opportunity up to the public.  

That said, here is everything we know so far:

  • The marathon lottery and registration period will open on March 10th
  • The lottery enrollment period will be a little bit longer this year, 6 weeks total, and will end on April 21st
  • Like last year, athletes will be able to either take their chances in the lottery or secure entries to the 2015 race through an official charity, such as Girls on the Run-Chicago.
  • There is a lower ($1,000) fundraising commitment for those participants that register with us before the lottery closes on April 21st.
  • Girls on the Run-Chicago will be covering race-entry fees again in 2015.
