Join DetermiNation for the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!  DetermiNation participants receive free training, DetermiNation gear, fundraising support and access to our VIP Village at the Congress Hotel (across the street from the corral entrance).  Free training is provided through Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) and Chicago Endurance Sports (CES). Participants have multiple fundraising options when joining our team: 

  1. If you join our team before the April 12 lottery deadline for a guaranteed entry, you will have a reduced fundraising minimum of $1,000.  Participants are responsible for paying the $185 race entry fee when you register on the marathon website.  This minimum will increase to $1,500 after April 12 in accordance with the Chicago Marathon charity program guidelines.
  2. If you would like to have a free race entry, you can commit to a higher minimum of $1,900 and you must raise at least $500 of this total by May 15.  
  3. If you have your own entry (that you achieve through a qualifying time, legacy, 2015 deferment, or if you are selected in the 2016 lottery) you can join our team without a fundraising minimum.  If you wish to receive full team benefits of training and access to our race day space at the Congress Hotel we ask you raise at least $1,000. 

When you join the American Cancer Society DetermiNation endurance event program, you join our nationwide community of athletes and get the best localized supporttraining, and fundraising tools to help you achieve your personal victory. Every mile of training will be more meaningful and on race day you’ll have the extra motivation you need knowing you’re helping save lives from all types of cancer.
