Forty-five thousand runners participating in Bank of America’s Chicago Marathon on 10-10-10 in downtown Chicago. One of the country’s premier running events, the 26.2 mile race attracts elite athletes and everyday runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries.
And CherryFlex ProSport Shots will be there!
Sample ProSport Shots will be part of every participant’s packet pick-up at the Health & Fitness Expo where runners go to gather race day essentials. Each Participant Bag with CherryFlexProSport Shots will also contain the runners’ bib number, timing device and event T-shirt. It’s estimated that 125,000 people will attend the two-day expo – a show promoting health and wellness – at McCormick Place on Chicago’s Waterfront and it’s open to the public with free admission.
Then early Sunday morning, runners congregate for a massive start to the event in downtown Chicago at Grant Park, with no fewer than a million spectators.
Sound like a big deal and a huge undertaking?
It is for runners and organizers alike and FruitFast is excited to be a part of this October 10, 2010 33rd annual event. We’ll be cheering the runners on in all categories from the youngest at age 16 to those athletes who are over 80. it’s been said that “people run Boston (Marathon) for the history, but run Chicago for the celebration.”
