A runner in the 2011Chicago Marathon died and a men's course record was set Sunday. The Chicago Tribune had coverage of the race results and of an athletic spectacle as the race wound past city neighborhoods, tens of thousands of cheering fans and looped back into Grant Park.
Will Caviness, 35, a firefighter from Greensboro, N.C., died while running the course, just 500 yards from completing it.
It struck a tragic note on a triumphant day that also saw Russian women's runner Liliya Shobukhova beat her personal best on the Chicago course to win her third consecutive Chicago Marathon title on the women's side, just behind Moses Mosop of Kenya, who set a course record with a time of 2:05:37 on the men's side.
Australian Kurt Fearnley won the Bank of America Chicago Marathon's wheelchair division for men, while Tatyana McFadden, 22, a member of the University of Illinois wheelchair team, won her second Chicago women's title -- and a reservation to London in 2012 to join the U.S. Paralympic team there.
