Packet Pickup Info

From Expo to Race Day, our 10th Anniversary will be a race experience like no other! Come to the MB Financial Hot Chocolate Chicago Expo to pick up your packet, which includes a race day bib and goodie bag. If you can't make it to any of the Expo days, don't fret; you're welcome to send a friend or family member to Expo to pick up your race day necessities - as long as they come armed with a copy of everyone's registration confirmation. Five packets per person max, please! Due to the sheer volume of MB Hot Chocolate Chicago participants, there is no race day packet pick-up.
