Legendary Hotel with Unparalleled Value and Gracious Hospitality
I love the Congress Plaza Hotel and Convention Center because it’s close to the starting line and the finish line. Enjoy unparalleled value and gracious hospitality at one of downtown Chicago’s most legendary hotels.
Legacy & Super Ambassador
I ran my first marathon at age 50 in Bordeaux, France, and have finished more than 64 marathons and 4 ultras since then. I’m a qualifying member in both Marathon Maniacs and the 50 States Marathon Club. I’m aiming to finish my 50th state this year in Honolulu, and I have my eye on completing all six of the Abbott World Marathon Majors. I’ve already ran Berlin, Chicago, New York and London and I’m looking to finish up with Boston and Tokyo in 2019. I’m a Brand Ambassador for Nuun Energy, Marathon Maniacs (Illinois and Chicago), XOSKIN Running Apparel, and Racertrips.
