Schedule of Events

From Packet Pick Up to Race Day, we have you covered…in gravy!

Packet Pick Up

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.
