InterPark’s “Green Sweepstakes” Contest — Which Aims to Increase Sustainability in Chicago by Offering Prizes That Range From Car Leases to Bicycles — Enters Its Fifth Week in the Shadows of the Fabled Chicago Marathon

CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwire – September 27, 2010) – People running the Chicago Marathon have been training for months and are now in their final phase of planning for the big day. Thankfully, runners can take parking off their list of to-dos before the starting gun fires by parking in one of many downtown Chicago InterPark parking garages.

“We are excited to have hundreds of parking spaces in the downtown area available to runners for the Chicago Marathon,” said InterPark’s President Marshall Peck. “Now they can get to the race easily, without a long walk, and because of our ‘Green Sweepstakes,’ can also win prizes that reward them for their commitment to both running and parking green.”

Peck added that InterPark’s garage at 20 E. Randolph is optimal for Chicago Marathon parking Oct. 10, in addition to the dozens of other garages in the downtown area. Visit for more locations and information.

The prizes listed below highlight InterPark’s growing reputation as the “green option” in Chicagoland parking.

One Grand Prize: a Tesla Roadster electric car. A two-year lease on a new, electric Tesla Roadster convertible, which goes 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and can drive 245 miles on one charge.

One First Prize: a Toyota Prius hybrid car. A three-year lease on a new Toyota Prius.

One Second Prize: Trek bicycles. Two top-of-the-line Trek Bicycles worth $2,500 (for the pair).
