Chicago Marathon 2019

By Ben Mullins

October 13, 2019 - Bij de 41e Bank of America Chicago Marathon worden meer dan 40.000 deelnemers verwacht, die een schilderachtig parcours door de stad volgen, dat eindigt in Grant Park, op de oevers van Lake Michigan.

Chicago hosts the fifth World Marathon Major of the year, after races in Tokyo, London, Boston, and Berlin. New York will host the final showpiece event in November.

Four-time Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah from Britain, Chicago Marathon winner in 2018, heads the men’s elite field, but faces tough competition from home favourite Galen Rupp and Kenya’s Lawrence Cherono, who secured the Boston Marathon title in April.

In the women's race, defending champion Brigid Kosgei of Kenya leads the field, hoping to add to her 2019 London Marathon winners medal.
