Race Day Information

Race Day Experience

Gear Check

Because carrying your stuff around is no fun.

If you have gear to check, please leave your bag with us at Gear Check. Lonely bags will be immediately removed from the premises and discarded. RAM Racing is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.

Gear Check will be available to all registrants at the race. All Gear Check bags must be 12" by 18" or smaller, please! Your race bib will have a tab at the top. Tear this off, as it's also your claim tab for Gear Check. Please attach it to your Gear Check bag, then hand the bag over at the Gear Check tent. Small zip ties work best for securing Gear Check bags, so look for one in your goodie bag at Packet Pickup.


Post Race Party

The party isn't over when you cross the finish line! You'll be handed your own mini pumpkin pie, and post-race snacks! Then join us for a fun time in Lincoln Park with music, a costume contest, pumpkin decorating and so much more!

All participants age 21 and over will also receive one free Revolution Beer in the post-race party. If you're feeling extra thirsty, you can purchase extra beer tickets by logging into your EnMotive account! Beverage tickets are 1 for $5, or 3 for $10. Tickets will also be available for purchase on race day--cash only!

Costume Contest
Bring out your best costumes for this year's costume contest! This year, prizes will be awarded for the Best Original Costume and Best Group Costume. The sky's the limit, so let's see what you've got!
