The Nature Conservancy’s Team Nature is heading to the "Windy City" on October 7, 2012, for the Chicago Marathon. Join our team and be "blown away" by this marathon's fast, flat and beautiful course through one of the world's most magnificent cities.
The 26.2-mile course offers a scenic tour of Chicago and its lively neighborhoods, as well as a convenient start and finish in beautiful Grant Park. Proudly referred to as Chicago's "front yard," Grant Park is a 319-acre public park located in Chicago’s central business district and is home to some of the city's most notable features--Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum Campus.
Running in a city that bridges nature and people is something we can get behind---we hope you will too!
