The Old Town area is an excellent area to view The Chicago Marathon because of the festive party atmosphere with music, beats, and exuberant spectators in a beautiful Chicago architectural area. Old Town is at the 10 mile mark, so the fast runners come through ~ 7:45am and then the other 45,000 runners after that. Try to arrive before 8am to be on east side of Sedgwick because the throng of runners cut off side street crossing. If you arrive late, stay on the west side till an opening occurs, then join us by the drummers. Details subject to change. Check for updates.

Early Sunday morning get on your bike, and check out the fun ! See you out there, and see you down the road ! Last Ride?! ~fin.~ tom a.k.
