The Chicago Marathon is one of the biggest running races held annually in Chicago, backed by the Bank of America. As one of the World Marathon Majors, it will be the Chicago Marathon's 35th anniversary in 2012. Formerly known as the Mayor Daley Marathon, it still remains one of the fastest growing marathons in the world. 45 000 runners participate in this marathon, which usually takes six and a half hours to complete (although there is no qualifying time that must be reached to participate). As the race is officially sponsored by a major bank, money raised is often given to worthwhile causes, such as Chicago Children's Memorial Hospital, World Vision, American Cancer Society, and more.
Many Olympians and famous runners have competed in the event. In 1982, Greg Meyer crossed the finish line in 2 hours, 10 minutes and 59 seconds. Equally astonishing was marathon runner Beatrice, who raised $250 000 during the Chicago Marathon of 1984. But you don't have to be an Olympian to run the race. The Chicago Marathon has seen CEOs, men and women wheelchair participants, and others compete in the marathon. And you and your best mate could be in the running to win a trip to the USA to run in the Chicago Marathon in 2012, all expenses paid. This includes premium flights to and from the USA, four night accommodation, Nike Running and Training products valued at $3000, and of course, two race entries for the 2012 Chicago Marathon. This is a marathon for those who love running, love to race, and most importantly, have the determination to go to the Chicago Marathon and have a great time participating.
So if you want to have this great opportunity for you and a friend to compete in the 2012 Chicago Marathon, take your Season Pass to Rebel Sport this season and just purchase any Nike product to go into the draw to win. (Alternatively, Nike products can be purchased online using the Season Pass).
