Please bring the following items to pick up your packet:

For the expo you will have to pick up your bib first inside on the West side of the Roosevelt Collection.  You will then head to the north side of the stores behind the movie theater to collect your swag bag/shirt.  Parking validation is located inside of Fleet Feet right inside the doors (self serve).  There are many vendors all along the Roosevelt Collection of shops to check out including Nuun, RxBar, Epic Bars, clothing, and other race discounts for upcoming races.



If you are unable to pick up your packet during the scheduled packet pick up hours or want to pick up your packet on race morning, you may elect to purchase the race morning Will Call for $30. Purchasing this option will allow you to pick up your packet on Race Day between 5:00 a.m. – 6:30 a.m. Will Call will be located in the Finish Festival area in Jackson Park.
