Be the hero nature needs - raise funds to protect our planet as you run wild at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 9, 2022.
When you run with WWF's Panda Nation, you’ll tackle the biggest, toughest challenges facing the planet—things like illegal wildlife trade, deforestation, climate change and water scarcity. While those challenges are massive, when we work together, we can take on anything. That’s why every day, WWF works in unity with many people, partners, and institutions to achieve lasting conservation solutions.
IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION
One of our highest priorities is the well-being of our supporters, volunteers, and staff. WWF is in close contact with race organizers who are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. The race organizers may need to reevaluate plans for the race as the situation evolves following guidance from medical experts. Race participants must follow the guidance of the CDC, state and local restrictions, and all health and safety protocols put in place by the race organizers.
If it is determined, for reasons outside of the event’s control, that the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon cannot take place, registered participants will have the option to defer their place to the 2023 event. No matter if you choose to defer your entry or not, your 2022 race registration fees and donations will be put towards advancing our mission to protect wildlife and their habitats.
We realize there remains a good deal of uncertainty on what the year ahead holds for many of us. To view the complete cancellation policy from race organizers, please visit the Chicago Marathon's website.
