2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon
On Sunday, October 7, the 41st annual Bank of America Chicago Marathon will welcome 45,000 participants to the City of Chicago. Each year, we proudly invite participants, volunteers and spectators to celebrate the Chicago Marathon which starts and finishes in historic Grant Park and travels through the downtown streets of Chicago.
- Similar procedure as previous years, except this year the course will extend a couple blocks further north beyond Addison up to Sheridan Rd. then turn back south on Broadway as usual.

As in past years on marathon morning during the street closures, the one block strip of Inner Lake Shore Drive in front of 3180 Lake Shore which is normally one-way southbound will become a TWO-WAY STREET under the supervision of Chicago Police.
