The annual Chicago Marathon (which is 26.2 miles) is tomorrow, Sunday, October 8th!
The first heat of runners starts at 7:20am (wheel chair racers – how freakin AWESOME is that?!) and there are 6 waves, with the last taking off at 8:35am. *The racers start AND finish in Grant Park.
There are 40,000 runners expected and 1.7 million people expected to watch along the course route! SO, be ready for major traffic and rerouting!
Here is the map of the race course – and a tip that your route and buses will be different is that there is already a sign there OR you see barricades off to the side (that will be put up early tomorrow morning). 2017 Chicago Marathon Route AND 2017 Marathon Road Closures – FYI – These roads will be closed from 7am-3:30pm!
