Event Directors

For over 25 years, Chicago Athlete Magazine has been the most comprehensive source of information in and around the Chicago area (IL, IN, IA, WI, MI). As the definitive publication for event and race planning as well as race results for area athletes, using our site and magazine features will largely influence the success of your event.

As a convenience to both our readers and local event directors, we offer these services free of charge:

Online Calendar Listing

Chicago Athlete partners with MyRacePal for our online calendar. To list your event, register for MyRacePal, or log in using the same username and password you used on Chicago Athlete’s calendar in the past. Indicate that you are a race director, and when logged in you will see a blue “Race Directors” box in the upper right corner. Clicking this box will take you to a new screen that shows all your previously listed events and gives you the option to add a new event to the calendar.


Magazine Event Listing

By posting your event to MyRacePal, your event will also appear in our magazine in the months leading up to your event. Chicago Athlete reserves the right to withhold posting events, including, but not limited to, lack of editorial space or removal of event category.



Posting results makes sure your participants come to your next event and increases your overall exposure. Every year, Chicago Athlete allows thousands of event directors to post their results to our website. To use this feature, register through Active.com, use a certified chip timer, or simply email your results to [email protected].

While postings are a good start, advertising will get you tangible results. At Chicago Athlete, we work with everyone from international companies to local shops, races and events. As highly experienced members of the athletic community, our talented sales staff will find the program that works for your budget and brings you results. We offer print, web and weekly eNewsletter advertising options that reach hundreds of thousands of athletes every month.
