Race Office

Event staff check-In
All event staff, vendors, guests and Forward Command attendees will be directed to Race Office to pick up event-issued materials. Please remember a government issued photo I.D. is required upon check-in. If you are part of a vendor group, note that at the time of checking in and you will be sent to the vendor check-in.

Race Office location
The Race Office is located within Harrison Volunteer Compound, located on north side of Balbo Avenue between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive. Everyone must enter via Balbo Avenue from Michigan Avenue.

Merchandise and credentials
All event staff and key volunteers will be issued a credential and merchandise upon checking in. Your personalized credential must be worn at all times while you are onsite, providing you access to your work area and serving as your ID for meals and equipment check-out.

Merchandise will be assigned based on the sizes selected in your EMOS profile. We ask that you please review and (if necessary) update the sizes selected in your profile. While we will do our best to accommodate merchandise requests, we cannot guarantee you will receive the sizes you requested.

Please note: Parking, stopping, stalling or pulling over is NOT permitted on any of the streets surrounding the Race Office. Doing so may result in your vehicle being towed. For more information on parking and other options for getting here, please visit our event staff webpage.
