Chicago Marathon

Does anyone know who actually organizes the Bank of America Chicago Marathon? For example, in Boston, the marathon is organized by the Boston Athletic Association. I am having a difficult time trying to find out who organizes Chicago. I have a friend who is very interested in perhaps starting a career in race management. Thanks much.

  • Chicago Event Management is the organizer - cemevent.com - they also plan the Shamrock Shuffle amongst other things (the World Cup Soccer viewing parties, etc.)

  • mikedezz in Printers Row retired educator

    You can also get information from the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA).
