Nike has announced a new multi-year agreement with Bank of America to become the official footwear and apparel sponsor of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, beginning with the Oct. 12, 2008 race, as well as the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle. Previous shoe company sponsor was New Balance. This deal has been in the works for a long time and surprised just about no one. If you want to run, no matter what brand of shoes you wear, sign up very soon. Fewer than 12,000 spots remain out of the 45,000 allotted.
