The Mercedes Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier so you get a lot of serious runners like these guys. 
(Temps around 30F)


While others take a more light hearted approach!

My son has run the Chicago marathon twice. I find it amazing that anyone who is not a religious aesthetic would feel the need to punish themselves so severely.
