Could the Chicago Marathon work here?

So my family is watching some minutes of the CHicago Marathon, and seeing how the coverage highlights neighborhoods, and shows large crowds in the Downtown, near South, and North side Lakefront neighbrohoods.

NBC just featured Lakeview, with the coverage highlighting the Boystown portion (which is approximately 3200 North).

Would Chatham )(and the South Side in general) benefit form having the Chicago Marathon, or (more realistically) another type of race, wther walking , running, biking, or even skateboarding? Would a race bring business in, and expose new customers to what we have to offer.

Or would the hassle be too much?  We know closing down 75th for an extended time hurt...but how about for a SHORT time, such as EARLY Sunday morning?
