Q) When I register for Team One Step, am I automatically registered for the 2023 Bank of America Chicago Marathon or the Chicago Half Marathon?

A) No. Signing up for Team One Step guarantees you a spot on our team and reserves your entry into the Bank of America Chicago Marathon or the HOKA Chicago Half Marathon. In addition, you are responsible for registering for the race itself by following a unique link that will be sent to you. We will provide you with detailed instructions once you join!

Q) I’m nervous about fundraising. What resources do you provide?

We are here for you every step of the way! We provide you with a fundraising page that you can personalize and send to your friends and family. We also provide templates for emails and social media throughout the season. Additionally, we offer fundraising clinics during the season to exchange ideas and offer support.

Q) How long do I have to raise the funds?

For the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, you have until September 23, 2022 to raise the minimum amount. We ask that you provide a credit card when you register to secure your impactful commitment. Your card will only be charged if you do not meet the minimum commitment. On September 23, 2022 at 9:00am CT, if you have not met the minimum commitment, your credit card will be charged the difference. You will have until November 9, 2022 to continue fundraising and request a reimbursement.

(Q) If I get injured during training or can no longer participate in the Marathon, am I still required to fundraise to the minimum?

We understand that circumstances change and that a lot can happen between deciding to race and the event itself. However, you are still responsible for meeting your fundraising minimum, regardless of whether you race. The only exception is for individuals who have a valid medical excuse, and can provide appropriate documentation. Even in the event of injury, we hope that you will honor your commitment and continue to fundraise in spite of not being able to race.
