north shore classic quick guide

Disclaimer: I received entry for North Shore Classic to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

North Shore Classic Half Marathon is in just a few days! Here's some quick info for you to be ready on race day. By the way, registration still appears to be open, but I imagine it'll close today some time, so hurry up if you want to be included in the fun! See below for registration code for some free swag.

There's some sweet swag in it for you including fun colored (ombre!) tank tops and a heft medal. You'll get the tank at packet pickup, but you need to complete the half marathon to earn the medal. 

Registration will be closing sooooon. When you register, use code BibRaveNSC17 to score a free RAM Racing water bottle (you'll receive it at packet pickup). 

Remaining Days for Packet Pickup:
Friday, June 2 from 2–6pm
Fleet Feet Sports Deerfield, 800 Waukegan Road, Deerfield, IL 60015

Saturday, June 3 from 10am–6pm

Fleet Feet Sports Deerfield, 800 Waukegan Road, Deerfield, IL 60015

Parking in Downtown Highland Park is plentiful. HOWEVER, PARKING IN PRIVATE LOTS INTENDED FOR CUSTOMERS ONLY IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Please check all signs, and make sure you are not parking somewhere you should not. Click here for more information on public parking in Highland Park.

Please note that parking lots on St. Johns will be impacted by road closures from 6:45am to 7:45am, which will make them difficult to access during that time.

Race Start:
Corral A–B (5k) 7am
Corral C–G (half marathon) 7:30am
About 3 minute break between each corral (from the start, so corral D will be at approximately 7:33am).

15 minute mile pace is required. They don't say exactly how many, but claim to be plenty of aid stations with water and Nuun. I don't like Nuun, so I'll be bringing my Orange Mud Endurance Pack with my electrolyte drink of choice to get me through what looks like a super hot day (in the upper 80s, woof).

Free photos will be emailed to you after the race. Download, print, post on Facebook - they are yours!

So who will I be seeing on Sunday? You'll find me in an orange BibRave tank top and a Sparkle Athletic Skirt... not sure which color yet.
