Forty years. So much has happened since the first Chicago Marathon stepped off in Grant Park, with four decades of memories, inspiration, love and determination steeped in this great race. Ahead of the 40th anniversary of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, we asked 10 influencers — a celebrity chef, long-time broadcasters, Chicago’s mayor, community running leaders and an Olympic marathoner — what it is about these 26.2 miles that resonates with them after all these years. Good luck to all the runners and happy anniversary to the Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
