Parking & Transit Information
There is limited street parking available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Bucktown neighborhood. We highly encourage taking public transit, or carpooling or biking to the event. There will be thousands of participants, volunteers, and spectators on site race morning. Please plan for heavy traffic and allow ample time to check your gear and get into your corral.

We do our best to capture great photos of everyone on race day, but we need your help! To make sure we’re able to accurately tag your pictures, wear your bib on the front of your body, and make sure it isn’t covered by clothing, race belts, etc.
