BANK OF AMERICA Chicago Marathon 2023

UPDATED: March 30, 2023  Our registration is now CLOSED for the 2023 BOA Marathon as we have filled all of our entries.

Our 2024 page will open on Friday, Sep. 30 and if you would like to be put on the contact list when that goes live, please email us at 

On Sunday, October 8, 2023, runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will set out to accomplish a personal dream by reaching the finish line in Grant Park.   We’ll make your miles matter by giving them a meaning—fundraising for our life-saving, No Kill mission that will make your heart happy.

TEAM PAWS Chicago is largest local and animal welfare charity team in the Chicago Marathon!  For 2023 we have 451 entries available on a first-come, first-served basis. 


Why join TEAM PAWS? You’ll save thousands of lives and receive tons of swag! Upon entry, you get guaranteed charity entry to the race, an official TEAM PAWS singlet, a fan club tee, pre-and-post parties, access to social events, free entry to future races, fundraising tools, guided mentorship, discounted training, and that warm feeling of knowing that all your work helped save the lives of thousands of homeless and at-risk animals. Hey, running a marathon is tough. But knowing you’re helping to save thousands of lives will make each mile worth it.
