2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon  


Run for those who can't!


We are so excited that you are interested in being a 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Team participant for the Brain Injury Recovery Foundation!

We appreciate your help in achieving our goal of supporting those who have suffered Brain or other Neurological Injuries (TBI, Spinal Cord, Brain Aneurysm, Stroke, MS, etc.) as well as their family, friends, and caregivers by providing programs for care, financial assistance and affordable rehabilitation 

The fundraising minimum to participate in the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon charity running team is set by Bank of America and is determined on the drawing of the lottery.  

Fundraising minimum requirements are as follows:  

  • $1,250 if you register before the lottery drawing  
  • $1,750 if you register post lottery drawing  
  • $1,250 if you gained entry through the lottery, are a legacy runner, or time qualifier  


As recognition of your hard work, all participants will receive: 

  • Waived entry fee of $195 domestic/$220 international to the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 
  • Charity running team dri-fit running shirt 
  • A customizable personal fundraising webpage and tips on how to raise funds 
  • Prizes for reaching various fundraising goals 


We require 75% of the Fundraising Minimum no later than 10 days prior to the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and 100% no later than 30 days after the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. If you have not met the 75% deadline, then your race bib will be held until payment is issued. If you have not met the 100% post-marathon deadline, your credit card will be charged for the remainder of the commitment. (For example: If 30 days after the event you have turned in $1,000, we will charge your credit card $750.) If you are unable to run in the Chicago Marathon because of injury or any other reason, by signing this form you commit to raising at least $1,250 for the Brain Injury RF. If you have already raised more than $1,250, all donations raised in the Brain Injury RF’s name must be submitted to the Brain Injury RF and remain with the Brain Injury RF. If you are unable to run in the 2020 Chicago Marathon, your entry cannot be deferred or transferred.  

Please note that individuals are NOT guaranteed entry into the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon by completing and submitting this Commitment and Waiver Form. Guaranteed charity entries are LIMITED and are available on a first-come first-serve basis. When the number of spots allocated to the Brain Injury RF is depleted, entry through this process may no longer be available. If selected for guaranteed entry through the Brain Injury RF, participants are responsible for registering for the race on their own and paying all race registration fees – fees will be reimbursed to runners by Brain Injury RF when $1,250 fundraising minimum is reached. Submittal of this form is separate from the Bank of America Chicago Marathon waiver and registration.
