Participant packet preparation

The 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon is just around the corner and we are looking for volunteers to help prepare participant packets on September 16, 17 and 18. The packet preparation process is relatively easy and fun. Join our team to help prepare for the largest, most anticipated running event of the year!
