Bib pick-up starts at 9am, so let's meet outside the convention center at 8:30am for a very short and easy run along the water, followed by a couple of 100m strides. The JD marathon plan calls for 20-30min easy, so let's target 2.5 miles.

If anyone has a specific route in mind or an easy spot to find each other by the convention center, please let us know and we can update the details for the meet-up.

Here is the location and hours for the bib pick-up, in case you decide to go at a different time:

McCormick Place Convention Center

Lakeside Center, Hall D
2301 S. Prairie Ave.*
Chicago, IL 60616

Friday, October 7,[masked] a.m. – 8 p.m.

Saturday, October 8,[masked] a.m. – 6 p.m.

Please note that pick-up requires a photo ID and that you can't pick-up for other runners.
