Volunteer for the Chicago Marathon

The 2009 Aid Station 08 water team poses before the runners arrive

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is the pinnacle of achievement for elite athletes and everyday runners alike. On Sunday, October 11, 2009, runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will set out to accomplish a personal dream.

Volunteers are needed at aid stations to hand out Gatorade and water and to offer much needed support.  You can help!

If you are an endurance athlete, now is the time to return the favor for all the volunteers who have helped you.
