Chicago Marathon: Top 10 States, Finish Times: New York is Fastest
At the Chicago Marathon in 2009, the number of finishers in the top 10 states exceeded 23,000, or about 70% of all finishers. Comparing the top 10 states, New York had the fastest field in the Chicago Marathon, with a 4:15 average finish time. Michigan came in second, barely ahead of Ohio, with 4:22 vs. 4:23 average times, respectively. Time will tell, literally, if New York can successfully defend its title in the 2010 Chicago Marathon.
