RE: Official 2017 Chicago Marathon Live Discussion Thread
Was curious about the prize money at Chicago after I saw David Monti tweeting about it. It only goes 5 deep in the open. Then it goes 10 deep American only but from just $15k down to $500.
In all of the previews bashing the lack of a quality field, maybe this would have been something to look at. Without pacers and slower winning times on the men's side, if you're not American and finish 6th running 2:14 in a 2:11 race that gets you nothing. No prize money. No invite to a big spring marathon. For a race as big as Chicago, you should go at least 10 deep, if not 15 or 20. You have the money.
