Come run with Team JDRF in the 2021 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
The 44th anniversary of the iconic race, once called the “People’s race anyone can come and enjoy,” will take place on Sunday, October 8-10th, 2021. Running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon is the pinnacle of achievement for elite athletes and everyday runners alike. On race day, runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will set out to accomplish a personal dream by reaching the finish line in Grant Park.
You may have run out of fingers to count the number of marathons that you’ve participated in and for some, this will be the first time you’ve attempted 26.2 miles. When you join Team JDRF, we are committed to supporting you as you fundraise and prepare for the big day!
Please note: The following information is based on an in-person 2021 race. Answers are subject to change in the event of a postponement/cancellation of the 2021 Chicago Marathon. In the event of a cancellation JDRF will communicate cancellation policies, including fundraising requirements, at that time. For the 2020 Chicago Marathon cancellation, Team JDRF runners were NOT required to reach their fundraising minimum.
