CHICAGO, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Just three months before 45,000 runners take to the streets of Chicago, the American Cancer Society Charity Runner Team is still offering entries to the sold out 2009 Chicago Marathon.

"The Society is thrilled to offer the running community these high-demand slots for the Chicago Marathon," said Alison Tibbits, project manager, fundraising resources, American Cancer Society. "The Charity Runner program provides runners from across the country the opportunity to make their training miles more meaningful by joining the fight against cancer, and fulfilling the mission of the Society -- to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back."

In addition to receiving an official bib for the Chicago marathon, members of the American Cancer Society Charity Runner team will receive:

  • Free team training program through Chicago Area Runner's Association (CARA)
  • Tent in Charity Village just steps from the start line
  • Private port-a-potties and gear check for Society runners
  • Team support and social events
  • Personalized web page to post pictures, share stories, communicate with donors and track fundraising progress throughout the season

As one of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon's official charities, the American Cancer Society Charity Runner Team has helped more than 6,000 athletes raise $7 million to support the fight against cancer.
