Once a year the Chicago Marathon takes place. It is a 26.2 mile (42 km) course that starts and finishes on Columbus Drive near Buckingham Fountain. This also happens to be right next to where we live, so we got some good birds eye views, but for this years one we went for a walk to the top of our road to take some photos.
This year Kenyan, Robert K. Cheruiyot, won the race in 2hr 7 minutes collecting $125,000. This marathon is part of the World Marathon which takes place over 2 years in Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago & New York.
