Charity Partners: Training For A Cause

Are you looking to make your training even more meaningful? Running/training for a charity can give your training more purpose and meaning, while helping bring attention and support to a cause that is personal to you. Chicago Endurance Sports is proud to partner with a wide variety of wonderful charities that have guaranteed registrations to The Bank of America Chicago Marathon or other events, such as the Chicago Triathlon. And, as a thank you for helping raise important funds, most of these charities will also cover your registration fee for the Chicago Endurance Sports Summer Marathon Training or Triathlon programs. In 2018 alone, CES helped offset over $50,000 worth of training fees, in order to help our charity partners give more to their cause. You can make a difference - please consider joining one of these outstanding organizations.

FAQs

Does my organization need to provide a certain amount of athletes to train with CES?

CES does not require that your organization have a maximum or minimum amount of athletes that can train with CES. However, the more athletes you bring, the more we can discount their training fees.

Does CES offer a training discount for charity athletes?

Your athletes can register and pay for their own training using a charity discount code or they can register for a training program using a "free training" discount code and CES can invoice you for your athletes' training.
