Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2023

About

It’s more than a race, it’s moments that will challenge, inspire and change you! From the moment you become part of our team to the moment you cross the finish line, the Liver Life Challenge provides an unforgettable experience. You’ll achieve your own fitness goals, while fundraising to create a better future for the estimated 100 million Americans affected by liver disease.

The American Liver Foundation is an Official Charity Partner with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and has a limited number of guaranteed entries available for the 2023 race. Top consideration will be given to applicants who are highly motivated to raise important funds to support the ALF mission with a minimum commitment of $1,250 if you join before the drawing (November 17, 2022) or $1,750 if you join post-drawing. This minimum is a requirement that every runner is personally responsible for without exception.
