Packet Pickup

All participants must pick up their packet prior to the race start. To avoid lines and race morning delays, we encourage participants to arrange a group pick up where one person picks up multiple packets at once (if possible).

Your packet includes: bib number, an athlete shirt, a clear Gear Check bag, Greater Chicago Food Depository food donation bag and a few items from our sponsors.
