Registration for Bank of America Chicago Marathon will again be done via an open lottery, which will open on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 12:00 pm CST. There are a few guaranteed entry options during the open lottery, and one of them is running with an Official Marathon Charity Partner like Team LUNGevity.
There are three options for running with and fundraising for Team LUNGevity in the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon:
1. Pre-Lottery Close Guaranteed Charity Entry (while spots last): Sign up for Team LUNGevity before the lottery closes on November 30, 2017, by 12:00 pm CST and commit to raising $1,000.* You are responsible for paying your own registration fee through the Bank of America Chicago Marathon website and may request reimbursement if you reach a fundraising goal of $2,000. After you join Team LUNGevity you will be sent a code to register yourself through Bank of America Chicago Marathon website.
2. Post-Lottery Close Guaranteed Charity Entry (while spots last): Take your chances on the lottery and sign up for Team LUNGevity between December 13, 2017, and May 22, 2018, and commit to raising $1,500.* You are responsible for paying your own registration fee through the Bank of America Chicago Marathon website and may request reimbursement if you reach a fundraising goal of $2,500.
You MUST email Heather at boachicago@LUNGevity.org to obtain a registration code for Post-Lottery Close spots BEFORE registering. If you do not, we may not be able to honor your registration.
3. Self-secured Spot: Enter the lottery through the Bank of America Chicago Marathon website and secure a spot on your own. Join Team LUNGevity and commit to raising $500. This is also a great option for those who already have guaranteed entries!
