The Bank of America Chicago Marathon lottery may be closed, but Glenwood Academy currently has spots available to run the 2022 event. Runners can put their name on the academy’s “Glenwood Gazelles” list through Jan. 30.

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is set for Sunday, Oct. 9, 2022. It is considered the pinnacle of achievement for elite athletes and everyday runners.

Runners are asked to raise a minimum of $1,750 for the Glenwood Gazelles Team, with all money raised going to Glenwood Academy. To register, please contact Nora Sheahan at [email protected]

Glenwood Academy is a private residential school that provides life-changing solutions for students from challenging circumstances impacted by poverty, violence, inadequate educational systems or lack of resources, changing the trajectory of their lives through access to increased opportunity.
