(** Yes, we know she has run the New York Marathon previously…)

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday 7th October will represent the first ‘as a full-time runner’ Marathon of Rio 2016 Olympic Triathlon Champion, Gwen Jorgensen. Having said all year that her plan was to run a late season race over the distance, that the chosen event is one of the Marathon Majors on the fast course in the Windy City is not a major surprise, given its place in the calendar.

This year Gwen has run several events over 5000m, 10,000m, 10km and Half Marathon
