Bank of America Chicago Marathon runners can commemorate their journey to the finish line by gearing up with official race merchandise offered by Nike.
The sportswear giant has curated a collection of performance running and lifestyle apparel tailored for the special occasion — and marathon organizers shared a glimpse of the limited-edition line earlier this week.
Runners can score the marathon drip, from shorts to sweatshirts, online at Nike.com, in-store at Nike Chicago or at the Abbott Health and Fitness Expo during race week. Nike Members were given priority access to a selection of clothes Thursday.
