Chicago Marathon

Chicago, Illinois

As always, this year's Chicago Marathon is an exciting, major attraction for the city. One of only six World Marathon Majors, this race brings 45,000 runners to Chicago! But, on the roads with these ambitious, inspiring runners are local drivers trying to make their way around the city while avoiding major road closures and inevitable traffic. The good news is, thanks to our community for reporting this event and helping us update our maps, all Wazers will be rerouted around the race closures and traffic, getting the fastest route possible!
