The 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

The first race was held in September 1977 under the original name the Mayor Daley Marathon, which drew a field of 4,200 runners. It is among the fastest growing marathon road races in the world, due in part to its largely fast and flat course which facilitates the pursuit of personal records and world record performances.
