It's a big deal around these parts and for good reason. Started in 1976, the Chicago Marathon is one of the biggest events of its kind. There were 1000 runners in that first marathon; last year, there were over 33,000 finishers! The Chicago marathon attracts amateur and elite runners from all over the world.
