TEAM CPMF


TO JOIN TEAM CPMF, PLEASE AGREE TO THE WAIVER BELOW AND SUPPLY ALL NECESSARY CONTACT/PAYMENT INFORMATION.


The Bank of America Chicago Marathon will operate under a LOTTERY registration system this year. The lottery will be open from March 19th through April 7th and all lottery entrants will receive a notification on April 14th if they are accepted into the race.

 

Athletes who wish to bypass the lottery registration process altogether can secure a guaranteed entry into the
Chicago Marathon by joining TEAM CPMF now  through April 7th only. By bypassing the lottery registration process and securing a guaranteed entry into the race, you are committing to a required and enforced fundraising minimum of  $1,000 for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, plus the Bank of America Chicago Marathon entry fee of $185 ($210 non-U.S. residents). The funds raised by TEAM CPMF benefit the families of Chicago police officers who were killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.

 

Please note, those who successfully secure their own entry into the Bank of America Chicago Marathon are also highly encouraged to join TEAM CPMF. The required fundraising commitment for TEAM CPMF with a self-secured standard registration is $500.

 

As a member of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation marathon team, you will receive a pre-race pasta dinner, team gear and invitations to exclusive CPMF events like the Gold Star Families Reception and Candlelight Vigil. You will also be able to utilize the lower level exhibit hall at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan, for gear check and meeting friends & family post-race. Food and drink will be provided.

 

Upon registration, a fundraising page will be automatically created for you. You will be emailed a link to this customizable page as well as a packet with ideas to make fundraising easy and enjoyable.
