About Crossroads Runners

Team Crossroads Runners is a highly motivated group of runners who show their dedication to improving our community by raising funds a number of different charities while training for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Over the last 6 years, this dynamic group of dedicated runners has raised nearly half a million dollars to benefit those suffering from homelessness and hunger in Chicago.

Run with Chicago’s most committed team and raise funds for those in need! No experience necessary! Some will be experienced runners who can help lead the team; others will be new to running. Just about anyone can run a marathon or half marathon if they are willing to train.

As a member of Team Crossroads Runners, you will have access to personalized training and injury screenings, opportunities to participate in fun runs and special events, VIP race day experience at Buddy Guy’s Legends and much more! Above all, runners have the opportunity to add meaning to their marathon experience by running to help our neighbors who desperately need our help.


Financial Support

Most organizations tackling social problems don’t have access to the marketing, technology, management or strategic planning resources they need to succeed. Our charity partners rely on funds raised through events like the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to continue tackling critical issues like the homelessness, unemployment and education.

Your donation will make a difference in the lives of so many throughout Chicago.
