Lodging for Chicago Marathon

Although we have some team funding to use for lodging the weekend of the Chicago Marathon, hotel rates get jacked up that weekend and it is doubtful our funds will go very far.

Because of this, we want to encourage anyone racing who has a convenient, comfortable, free place to crash, to please take advantage of said opportunity. I know Red Fox plans to stay with a friend, and I tentatively plan to stay with my parents, who are coming out for the race.

We will come up with a team meeting spot on race day.

By next Monday, July 26, can everyone racing let me know what their plans are? After we know who is taken care of and who is not, we can look into booking hotel rooms. Perhaps if we do this soon we have a chance of getting decent rates. And perhaps we don't. But it's still good to do this sooner rather than later.

Thanks. Feel free to post here or e-mail me at

I will email you as well, but I wanted to let the group know my intentions:

I am going to fly to Chicago on Friday, Oct 8 and spend that night and the night before the race at my friends place.

I WOULD like to be a part of the hotel group the night after the marathon...even if it means a floor.

I am flying home from Chicago on Monday 10/11 LATE in the day.
