When you run with Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, you are empowering nearly 51,000 girls! We have limited openings for individuals who are ready to grab their running shoes and fundraise on behalf of our Girl Scouts. This is our fifth year hosting a team and we are excited to be growing each year. Don’t wait to apply! Space is limited.

The Chicago Marathon is one of six Abbott World Marathon Majors, and an experience of a lifetime! Each year, runners from 50 states and more than 100 countries run through 27 Chicago neighborhoods on a flat and fast course that starts and finishes in Grant Park.
