It’s here! Chicago runners wait all year for the Nike Chicago Marathon line to drop and it’s finally time. And, Nike did not disappoint for 2021! This year, runners can purchase their gear through the new Pick Up Hub next to the Nike Chicago store.
“This year, instead of consumers waiting in line at the Nike booth at the Expo to obtain their purchases, Nike is launching the Chicago Pick Up Hub next to the Nike Chicago store. No need to wait in line or deal with large crowds; consumers can order on the Nike app or online, choose the Express Pick Up option, and be notified when your package is ready for pick up.
Through this new way to shop, Nike is using its online-to-offline capabilities to support a large-scale BOPIS (Buy Online, Pickup In Store) operation tied to a major event in Chicago – ultimately placing the consumer’s needs and safety first.”
Nike has been a great friend and partner to the City of Chicago and Chicago runners, in particular. We are so thankful to have Nike support our athletes and the Chicago Marathon. Here are some of our favorites that you can check out to celebrate the 43rd Chicago Marathon in style.
Nike Chicago Club Fleece
Combat the post-race chill with the classic style and soft warmth of this closet staple. This one’s for those putting in the hours to give it their all on the streets of the Windy City. We looked back to ’90s at the tees and hoodies celebrating Chicago’s finest sports teams for inspiration. Some of the city’s iconic landmarks are referenced in the typography at the front.
This hoodie may be my favorite piece in this collection. It’s super warm and soft on the inside and eye-catching in design on the outside. The iconic design is so very Chicago and encapsulates the attitude that Chicagoans bring to the field. I can’t wait to be snuggling up in this post race! Unless of course, the weather holds firm in the high 70’s. Hey Chicago weather, you’re supposed to be in the mid-50’s on race day!
Nike Therma-FIT Element Chicago
Women’s Running Crew
Chicago is where the magic of championships happens. Make your way through the Windy City in this warm crewneck with a lightweight feel. It uses classic typography that represents the spirit of Chicago’s most cherished landmarks. Cross the finish line in record time and make your journey an unforgettable one.
This stylish top will be great for cold weather running. It can serve as a base layer for our chilling January-February temps or can stand alone in the cool December days. The therma-fit material will keep warmth in, while absorbing moisture.
Nike Repel UV Windrunner Chicago
Men’s Running Jacket
Welcome to the Windy City, a place where runners brave all conditions to reach their goals. With the return of the Chicago Marathon, we celebrate those staying at it with designs inspired by the city’s legendary teams from the ’90s. We took the classic Windrunner’s water-repellent design and added graphics referencing some of the iconic landmarks you’ll pass on the way to the finish line.
This jacket will allow you to showcase your bragging rights after tackling the 26.2. It’s loud and proud and ideal for running in cooler temps and/or rain. This windbreaker is designed to repel the rain and keep you running through the elements. I think the windbreaker is the best piece of equipment for the fall and spring. And this is one eye catching windbreaker.
