request for registration form


Registrations for the guaranteed race entries with the tour packages are done through hard copy registration forms (you can download the form at the link below).

As we have very limited race entries, we will contact you directly if we are able to offer you the tour packages. We will close the tour booking when the maximum number of entrants are filled. Do note that the guaranteed race entry comes complete with the tour package, and will not be sold on its own. Also, be informed that if you choose the twin share package, the onus is on you to get your own roommate for the package, as we do not sell this package for a single person. 

Please be advised that the purchase of the tour packages is an agreement with Athletes' Journey & the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to abide by the terms and conditions (which will be included with the invoice/booking offer), be actively involved in the tour program, and be in communication with the tour leaders/hosts regularly on all important matters.
