At Sierra Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram, we’re all about speed. That’s why we can never get enough of our favorite American muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger and the Dodge Charger. If you crave speed and power, these two cars will satiate your cravings.


But, sometimes we’re also in the mood for a different kind of speed, the kind that makes a physical demand on our bodies. Illinois is home to dozens and dozens of half marathons and marathons. We know the Dodge Charger can go fast, but how fast can you go? Challenge yourself by entering one of these upcoming races near Ottawa.

Chicago Marathon – Oct. 8

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Chicago Marathon, which has been called the “People’s race anyone can come and enjoy.” Make your own short trek up north this fall to challenge yourself to a long run in the Windy City.
