RACE DAY FOOD DRIVE

At packet pick up, you’ll receive a food drive bag from the Greater Chicago Food Depository. We ask that each participant fill the bag with non-perishable food products to bring with them on race morning. You’ll see food donation drops along the Start Line and adjacent to Gear Check.
