40,000 runners, over one million fans and a race course that goes through Chicago’s most historic neighborhoods, skyscrapers, parks and lakefront; that is
the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon.

Now in its 26th year, the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon makes everyone in Chicago a race supporter as our city is filled with visitors–a sellout for
hotels and restaurants, as this is the number one visitor and convention weekend of the year in Chicago. I held a few tables back at Eli’s the Place for Steak on
Friday and Sunday for our Marathon visitors so write me at marc_schulman@elicheesecake.com if you need a reservation.

We are very proud that our Bank, the LaSalle Bank, has made the Marathon its own. The leadership of LaSalle’s Chairman, Norm Bobbins, and the committment of
all of its associates to making the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon a world class marathon and sparing no expense or enhancement to make sure that the runner and
visitor experience is fantastic.

Eli’s Cheesecake is very proud to be a sponsor Saturday night’s Dominick’s Pasta Dinner for a select 2,000 competitors. What could be better than pasta and Eli’s Cheesecake to get your carbs up for Sunday’s race
