BTN Big 10K volunteers

The BTN Big 10K is an annual race celebrating the Big Ten Conference! This year’s event will take place on Sunday, August 11, 2019 in Grant Park. Volunteers will provide support to thousands of participants as they pick-up their bib and t-shirt, run the 10K or 5K race and kick off the college football season at the post-race Tailgate. All volunteers receive a BTN Fan t-shirt!
