Chicago Marathon rolls through Old Town

Renaissance North and our neighbors will be out on the sidewalks this Sunday, October 7th to cheer on more than 45,000 athletes participating in the 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  

Here at mile 10 in Old Town, the wheelchair racers should be arriving at Sedgwick at approximately 7:54 a.m. with the runners following shortly thereafter at 8:18 a.m. We can watch their progress on video screens at the corner of North/Wells.

In years past, we’ve seen neighbors bring hand-made posters, professional banners, t-shirts and noisemakers used to motivate the runners toward to finish line. Why don’t you gather your friends and families and join us? Experience the Marathon Chicago-style, and you help pump up the athletes too!

The city will be closing all streets along the route at 7:00 a.m. sharp. Organizers anticipate that the route through Old Town will re-open at 12:00 p.m. More information is available on the 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon website.

Come out and support these hard-working marathoners!
