Run the Chicago Marathon with Team SOC!

Join Team Special Olympics Chicago for the 2019 Chicago Marathon!

The Special Olympics Chicago Marathon Team (Team SOC) is a group assembled of runners of all ages and abilities in support of the Special Olympics Chicago mission. Team SOC supports runners in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon through fundraising, training, and day of support! We believe connecting people through sports and physical activity are the beginning steps in spreading our mission of inclusion, acceptance, and joy. Together, we can cross the finish line towards more inclusive communities… one runner at a time.
