What should I wear?
Volunteers are expected to dress in clothing appropriate for the work duties they have been assigned to perform. Always make sure to check the weather in advance! Wear closed toe shoes at all times and the current event uniform if provided. When required, you must have visible appropriate and current event issued credentials and/or ID vests and wristbands to be on the premises.
What is the volunteer uniform?
All volunteers receive their uniform at volunteer check-in. Packet Pick-up and race day volunteers receive a Nike hat and credential. The volunteer credential should be visible at all times.
What should I bring?
Make sure to bring a valid photo ID for Volunteer Check-In. Students are allowed to use school IDs. It is strongly discouraged to bring any personal belongings to the event. Gear check will be required for belongings that cannot be carried in a volunteer’s pockets.
Is food provided?
Snacks and meals are provided depending upon the time of day and duration of the volunteer shift. While we try to provide a range of food items, we cannot guarantee that meals will accommodate all dietary restrictions.
Transportation and parking?
We encourage volunteers to use public transportation when possible. Please visit transitchicago.com for more information and to plan your trip. Recommended transportation options and parking options (when available) will be provided in the confirmation email.
