Bank of America Chicago Marathon: runners will get to kick off post-race celebrations with a drinkable trophy

Chicago, Illinois – Those who compete in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon will get a trophy that can be consumed as part of the post-race festivities.

Goose Island has collaborated with the marathon to produce a limited-edition beer can that has been developed specifically for the 44th running of the event, which is scheduled to take place on October 9th.

The iconic stars of the Windy City will be printed on the side of the bright orange cans, which will also have an emboldened “finisher” tag printed on the can’s body.

On the day of the race, the can will be filled to the brim with 312 Wheat Ale, a locally brewed beer described by Goose Island as being “densely crowded with flavor” and said to have been influenced by the city.

The flavor of the beverage is said to be “crisp, fruity ale,” and it is said to be encased in “a silky, creamy body that is tremendously refreshing.” The beverage can be purchased from the brewery.

At the after-race party, which will be held in Grant Park’s Butler Field, Goose Island will be providing the beverage for marathon runners.

If they are at least 21 years old and cross the finish line, all of the race’s participants who have bib tickets can trade them in for a free beer from Goose Island.

Live coverage of the marathon will be broadcast in its entirety in both English and Spanish on NBC 5 Chicago, Telemundo Chicago, and TeleXitos, respectively, as well as streamed live online.

The live television broadcasts will take place between the hours of 7 and 11 a.m., and the live stream will be accessible at and, on the NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago apps, and on the stations’ Roku and Apple TV channels between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.
