When you accept a spot on Team Red Cross, you are taking an entry that we cannot refill if you drop out. Our charity counts on each runner to raise the fundraising minimum to support our mission. It is critical that each runner understands that their cancelation has a serious impact on the charity.
If you can no longer run in the 2024 Chicago Marathon for any reason, you accept responsibility for raising and/or personally donating half of the fundraising minimum to the American Red Cross if you cancel by July 12, 2024. If you cancel after July 12, 2024, you accept responsibility for raising and/or personally donating the entire fundraising minimum to the American Red Cross.
