  • Chicago pays Marathon Trials qualifiers

    LASALLE BANK CHICAGO MARATHON PAYS OUT $115,000 TO
    AMERICAN OLYMPIC HOPEFULS
    Nearly 40 Athletes Earned U.S.
    Olympic Marathon Qualifying Standard

    CHICAGO (October 29, 2003)--The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon helped many
    American runners continue their Olympic dreams by providing a cash bonus
    for U.S. Olympic Standard qualifying times. A total payout of $115,000 was
    given to 39 American runners who met the required times for the 2004 U.S.
    Olympic Trials at The 2003 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon.

    "We focused on supporting our male and female American marathon runners
    with this incentive program because we knew this year was a special year
    with the U.S. Olympic Trials coming up," said Carey Pinkowski, executive
    race director. "It's financially challenging for these athletes to
    properly train for these Trials and pay their bills, so we hope this money
    will offer them assistance to achieve their Olympic goals."

    The Marathon paid $3,500 to every American male who had a sub 2:20:00
    effort (the "A" U.S. Trials Standard), $2,500 to every American male who
    had a sub 2:22:00 effort (the "B" U.S. Trials Standard), $3,500 to every
    American female who had a sub 2:40:00 effort (the "A" U.S. Trials Standard)
    and $2,500 to every American female who had a sub 2:48:00 effort (the "B"
    U.S. Trials Standard). There were 22 men (10 "A" standard and 12 "B"
    standard) who received a payout and 18 women (five "A" standard and 13 "B"
    standard).

    The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon had the most qualifying times for any
    2003 marathon for both men (36) and women (33). (Some runners qualify more
    than once.)

    The American runners who achieved their Olympic Standard were pleased with
    the outcome of the race and seemed grateful for the added bonus.

    "The Chicago Marathon has always been extremely supportive of all its
    runners, regardless of ability and this is one more example," said Brian
    Sell who is a part of the HANSONS-Brooks Distance Project based in
    Rochester Hills, Mich. "I just wanted to remain competitive throughout the
    entire race and I was able to achieve my Olympic Standard. The next step
    is the Trials and the Marathon is helping me get there."

    "There were a lot of American women who finished in a pack for the 'B'
    Standard. I think there were about 15 of us right around the 2:48:00
    mark," said Lucie Mays from Carmel, Ind. "It was an overwhelming
    experience for all us to celebrate right after the finish line knowing we
    were all going to the Trials and even better we got some extra money."
