Prior to Race Day
The Bucktown 5k experience starts from the minute you register. Keep an eye out for messages that will help enrich your race experience, including customizable fundraising pages.
Two weeks before the race, make sure to come back to our website to view the Participant Guide.
Your last stop before race day is our packet pickup. Here you'll be able to pick up your packet, which includes a race day bib and goodie bag. Keep in mind that there is no packet pickup on race day!
