About Our Team CF

Thank you in your interst in joining Team CF for the 2024 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  Although we would love to have you run with us, we are at capacity for this year's race.  To be added to the waitlist for 2025, pleace reach out to Hannah Willkomm at hwillkomm@cff.org. Already have your own entry into the race and want to run with the team.  Please reach out to Hannah for more information.  

For over 15 years, Team CF runners have been dedicating their Bank of America Chicago Marathon miles to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. The 2024 Bank of America Chicago Marathon will take place on Sunday, October 13, 2024. It is one of the six World Marathon Majors and is among the fastest growing marathon road races in the word, due in part to its largely flat course through 29 Chicago neighborhoods. Runners who join Team CF Superheroes commit to raising $1,750 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and will receive the following benefits:

  • Guaranteed entry for the 2024 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 13, 2024
  • Complimentary 18-week virtual marathon training
  • Team CF running shirt for race day
  • CF Foundation fundraising incentives
  • Fundraising guidance and online tools to help you exceed your individual fundraising goal
  • And more!

Benefits subject to change
