The next Bank of America Chicago Marathon is scheduled for Sunday October 9, 2011

Registration for the 2011 Bank of America Chicago Marathon is closed. If you are interested in running in the 2012 marathon, please email Sarah at events@aicr.org. Thanks to the 42 runners of our 2011 TeamAICR Chicago team – our largest Chicago team ever!

Scientists have long estimated that a large percentage of our cancer risk is related to our lifestyle choices. AICR’s second international report on cancer prevention, Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective, found that 30 to 40 percent of all cancers are directly linked to the foods we eat, the exercise we get, and how well we watch our weight. What this means is that we have the potential through our daily food and lifestyle choices to make a major impact on the cancer risk we each face in our lives.


By joining TeamAICR you will join a group of dedicated athletes to help raise vital funds in the fight against cancer. Your non-refundable registration fee will cover entrance fees into the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

  • A running shirt;
  • A personalized fundraising page on the AICR website;
  • Training information and resources to prepare you for the event;
  • Fundraising advice and tips to help you reach your fundraising goal; and
  • Various other fundraising incentives including prizes for our top fundraisers.
