Dr. George Champis, Medical Director, with Carey Pinkowski, Executive Director, Bank of America Chicago Marathon


For me, the marathon does not end until we get the final report from the Medical Director. Dr. George Champis, who has worked on the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for twelve years.

There were nearly 2000 marathoners in the medical areas at Chicago, with 44 who needed a visit to the hospital. The major issue was heat stroke for atheltes between 2:30 and 4:00 timing.

This presser is the last offiical press event of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, and with it, we see a more relaxed Carey Pinkowski and the good doctor.
