All team members are asked to commit to raising a minimum of $300 or $600 and must already have an entry into the race.* In exchange for that generous commitment, team members enjoy some outstanding benefits including free training, free cheer shirts for friends and family, team gatherings, and much more.

*Girls on the Run was able to guarantee entries at a higher fundraising commitment ($1,000 before the lottery closed and $1,500 after the lottery selection) starting in early March through the end of May, when we ran out of entries. If you are interested in guaranteeing your entry with us in future years please sign up here to receive 2016 team communications as we receive information.


Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 that uses the power of running to inspire girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.  The program combines training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants. More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. Last year, our team raised funds to help more than TWO THOUSAND girls cross their first finish line. Run with us, and we’ll help you while you help them!

As a team member for the marathon you will receive:

  • Free training with Chicago Endurance Sports, CARA, or virtual*
  • Free cheer squad shirts for your friends and family to wear on race day
  • Ongoing fundraising support
  • Team workshops and gatherings
  • A Nike team running top
  • A free Chicago Athletic Clubs membership to the first five team members to raise $2,000
  • The opportunity to guest coach at a Girls on the Run program
  • A pre-race pasta party at The Drake Hotel
  • A private indoor race day “home base” with food, refreshments and INDOOOR BATHROOMS only blocks away from the start with Athletico onsite to provide pre- and post-race stretching  
  • Bi-monthly team raffles for gift cards, GOTR swag, and more!
  • One of the most meaningful experiences of your life…  

*Free training provided at the $600 commitment level only.
