Urban Sport

Next month’s New York City Marathon tends to get the lion’s share of attention, but the 40th annual Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 8 is just as exhilarating, with runners from every state and over 100 countries embarking on a 26.2-mile sprint through the city. From the sidelines, watch and root for these dedicated athletes as they wind their way through neighborhoods like Chinatown, Pilsen, and Lincoln Park en route to the Grant Park finish line. Early birds should hit the first-mile marker via the Red line to Grand/State by 7:30 a.m.
