Gain Entry to the Closed 2009 Chicago Marathon by Joining Susan G. Komen's Marathon for the Cure(R)
Date:6/9/2009

CHICAGO, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Registration for the 2009 Chicago Marathon is officially closed, and the only way to gain entry now is to join a non-profit team with availability. The Chicagoland Area Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) invites marathon runners to help them move miles closer to a world without Breast Cancer by joining Marathon for the Cure(R). 90 spots are available, but they are going fast, and the registration deadline is Thursday, June 25, 2009.

Why run for Komen Chicago? Almost everyone is affected by breast cancer - a disease that strikes at random and for which the causes are still unknown - Komen Chicago knows that every moment counts. An estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with the disease, and an estimated 10 million women worldwide could die, over the next 25 years, without a cure.

In order to run with Marathon for the Cure(R), runners will need to commit to raise a minimum of $2,200 without a current race entry or $1,500 with a current race entry. This number is set to keep program costs low and to ensure donations are utilized to maximize our investment in breast cancer research, screening, education and treatment.

    With a Team Komen Chicago Registration, participants will receive:
    *New Balance race singlet
    *Welcome T-shirt
    *Free online fundraising page
    *Discussion forums to connect with other runners
    *Access to free online training programs
    *Discount airfare for out of town runners
    *Discount at the Congress Hotel for runners
    *New Balance gifts to top 3 fundraisers
    *Pre-race party
    *Group Training runs
    *Free post-race massage
    *Komen Chicago Marathon Kick-off run with Dr. Joseph and Sarah Paun of
    Paun Family Chiropractic to speaking on the following topics:
    **Common running injuries and the biomechanical dysfunction which precede
    these injuries
    **Top 3 "power supplements" every runner should have
    **Mind-body connection and how hypnosis could help you achieve your
    personal record
