About 2021 Bank of America Chicago Marathon with Back on My Feet

**2021 RACE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.**


Although registration is closed, you can still support Back on My Feet! Consider making a donation to one of our FundRacers and help them reach their fundraising minimums! Interested in running with us next year? Fill out our interest form and we’ll let you know when 2022 bibs become available.

Already have a bib for the 2021 race and still want to fundraise for Back on My Feet? Click this link and then “fundraise your way” to begin the registration process (be sure to select the “join a team” option from the left side of your screen and choose “BoMF – Chicago Marathon) and create your own fundraising page which you can use to share via email, on social, etc. As usual, we prefer that all donations go through this site as funds collected via Facebook and Instagram’s “donate” buttons are not trackable and therefore we cannot give you credit.

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon is the fourth-largest race by number of finishers worldwide and we want you to join us in crossing the finish line on October 10, 2021! Known for its flat and fast course, this World Marathon Major race starts and finishes in Grant Park and travels through 29 neighborhoods.
By signing up for the Back on My Feet team, FundRacers will agree to raise $2,000 & pay a registration fee ($205-$230) to secure their entry into the race, and to support our mission and our members.

Are You In?! 

If So, here are your Next Steps:

Step 1: Hit the 'Register Now' button below and get your fundraising page started with a $25 fee that goes toward your $2,000 fundraising minimum.

Step 2: After registering with us, you'll receive an email with a link to register directly with the Chicago Marathon. This is a separate registration and fee ($205-$230). Note: this step needs to be completed by Monday, June 7th to secure your bib for the race!

Step 3: Start Fundraising! Your minimum is due the Monday before race day (October 4th). Our FundRacing team will be with you every step of the way!

All team members are eligible to participate in our FundRacing incentive program and receive Back on My Feet-branded gear as you reach fundraising milestones (check out the offerings below!).

Back on My Feet uses running and community to transform lives – and when you FundRace with us, you do too. If accepted as a member of our FundRacing team, you gain access to the top races in the world. The money you raise helps our members overcome homelessness through the incredible power of putting one foot in front of the other.

**Please note that Back on My Feet does not cover travel expenses to and from the race. We strongly recommend using the race’s official travel partners for making travel reservations.
