And only official charities that are part of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charities Program will receive guaranteed entries.

For those who prefer to stay at home, the show can be viewed on NBC5 Chicago, TeleXitos.

For a marathon, a large tent would be perfect. It can create a space for the runners' supply items and also provide a resting area. If any runner has any sudden situation, he can also come under the tent to remedy it first. It can also shield the spectators from UV rays, making it a very useful prop for the race.

After the festival, you can relax with your friends while lying on the beach. If you want to protect your skin from the sun, the canopy tent is a good choice. Pop up canopy is not only a shade but also very easy to install and carry. Browsing through the above events, I believe you will be attracted to them. No matter what event you choose to attend, whether you go to the site or not, I hope you can have a good time!
