2021 BANK OF AMERICA CHICAGO 13.1 EVENT UPDATE
As a result of the continued uncertainties presented by the coronavirus pandemic, event organizers have made the difficult decision to delay the inaugural Bank of America Chicago 13.1 to 2022. The 2021 event was scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 6.
While there are signs of hope for brighter days ahead, we came to this decision knowing we could not guarantee the health and safety of all event attendees, as well as create the world-class racing and festival experience we envisioned for the city’s newest half marathon.
Registered runners who had deferred their 2020 Bank of America Chicago 13.1 entry to 2021, will be contacted with the option to continue to defer their place and entry fee to the 2022 race (date to be determined) or to receive a refund for their race entry.
We look forward to the future when we can safely come together to celebrate one another, our sport, and our city.
