2010 Chicago Marathon Media Center: We, the assembled journalists, producers and bloggers in the media center enjoyed race announcer Toni Reavis' always astute and sometimes hilarious commentary of the marathon. Mr. Reavis is a well-respected Analyst & TV Commentator of running events.
This was to be 2008 Olympic Marathon Gold Medalist Sammy Wanjiru's first marathon on American soil. He won the race with a 2:06:24 course record. Sadly, after winning the race again in 2011, Wanjiru passed away after a fall off a balcony at his home in Kenya.
