With a record number of runners at the 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon (45,000!) the Race Expo was the place to shop for last-minute gear, nutrition and snacks. We navigated the throngs of excited runners as they picked up race packets and snapped photos to check out race gear. Here are some of our favorite commemorative t-shirts and shoes to help remind runners of the day they toed the starting line in the Windy City. (From the editors: We think next year there needs to be a shirt with Deena Kastor’s finisher photo that reads: She’s the master at marathons. Congrats to Kastor on her U.S. masters record in the marathon!)
