Chicago Marathon

19/10/2017

Fiona and Kerry Jardine travelled to Chicago to take part in the 40th Chicago Marathon on Sunday October 8th.

Walking in the dark to the start line both wondered what temperature the race would be as at 6am it was already 20 degrees centigrade. The start was staggered and it took nearly 20 minutes to get over the line and start running.

Over 43,000 participants ran through 29 neighbourhoods including Pilsen, Chinatown and Boystown. The race crossed the Chicago river many times giving a wonderful view of Downtown Chicago on a bright and sunny day. The runners were met with great fanfare from all the residents. People all along the route handed out sponges,sweets,water and some even turned hoses on to cool down the runners. With temperatures climbing to 25 degrees in the second half both dug in to complete the race. Fiona finished in 4 hours 18 minutes and Kerry in 5 hours 9 minutes in her first ever marathon. Both agreed it was a very rewarding,enjoyable and laidback marathon to take part in and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience .
