Join 97.9 The Loop at Mercy Home in the West Loop (1140 W Jackson) Sunday, Oct. 7th for one Rockin' Race Day! We'll be posted at miles 14 and 16 cheering on the Mercy Home Heroes, friends, family and all of the runners in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. The Loop will also be playing games and doing giveaways all day long AND we'll even have food and complimentary drinks to help keep you going.

PLUS we'll be giving away a decked out man cave - including a Toshiba 50" HD LED TV, reclining sofa and stocked mini fridge - from PODS of Chicago--the best moving and storage idea ever!

This is one marathon day you don't want to miss!

Marathon starts at 7:30. Free parking available at Target directly across from Mercy Home (entrance on Aberdeen) and Carmichael’s (just 1 block away off Monroe and Aberdeen) so you can come and go as you please!
