Chicago Marathon Kickoff and Nike's New Running Gear



This Saturday, June 18th, Nike kicks off the journey to the 2011 Bank of America Chicago Marathon at Soldier Field. There will be special guests on hand, including Chicago Bears’ own Earl Bennett to help inspire this year’s runners. All runners are welcome to share in the experience even if you are not running the marathon this year.

To provide even more inspiration, runners are invited to go for a training run along the lakefront with Marathon and Nike Running Experts. 

And if that wasn’t enough to get you pumped and ready to run, Fleet Feet Sports and Naperville Running Company will have their experts on hand to talk about gear, proper running form and in-depth running instructions.

When and Where:

  • Group runs start at Soldier Field on Saturday morning at 6am and the event goes until 4pm. Earl Bennett is scheduled to show up around 11am.  

Check out a cool Nike video of some of the their new running gear that could be on display at the event…you’ll just have to go and see for yourself….

Lastly, for all of those running any races or just run a lot for that matter, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE….Foam Roll at least 3 times a week folks. Believe me, it will improve your training runs, keep your legs healthier and help prevent those stupid training injuries!
