Sat May 12 at 6:30 PM, Humboldt Park Formal Gardens
3000 W Division St, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
It's that time of year again, and this time bibliogrrl and baniak will be RUNNING A CHECKPOINT. I will be there, too!
This year the start point is the Humboldt Park Formal Gardens (3000 W Division) at 6:30, so ideally we'd meet somewhere nearby around 5:30 for pre-race eats.

This is officially just for the race, but you guys should still plan to meet up and stuff.

I AM RUNNING A CHECKPOINT. Can't tell you where it is, but it will be AWESOME.

If anyone would want to help out at the checkpoint, holler. We can use all the help we can get.

I will be bibliogrrl's minion at said checkpoint. It is, in fact, going to be awesome!

Someone at the Goat was saying there might be 1,000+ people attending, what kind of throughput do we have to maintain?

I'm interested in pre-jouney dinner, and journeying with some Mefites to said end of the night.

This sounds like fun! Can I register somehow?

You don't register to run the race. You just show up.

Shoot. You should confirm this. :D

Oh wow. I'm so glad you posted this because I've been waiting since last year to play as a runner and somehow managed to not notice when it was. Hopefully I can make it, and I'll see some of you at checkpoints!

I would definitely meet up, but don't know anything around there. Anyone have a suggestion?
posted by BevosAngryGhost at 9:07 AM on May 10, 2012

I can't do the race itself, but is anything happening afterward?

I managed to get into to town earlier than expected, so I'm currently bumming around the garden. Was pre-race eats a flop? Otherwise I'll see y'all at the super secret awesome checkpoint!

How'd everyone do?

We had great successes all around! Checkpoint 4 was awesome (and kind of turned into a crash pad for weary catchers halfway through the night) and all of our runners made it through alive! It was cold, it was wet, but we prevailed.
