Race Day Athlete’s Village at FFC South Loop
FFC South Loop is ideally located three blocks west of the Chicago Marathon finish line at 1151 S. State Street. Onsite parking is available (enter off 11th street adjacent to elevated train tracks), as well as a full health club with showers and gear check. Please note that parking does fill up and we recommend arriving as early as 5:30 AM to park. Parking is complimentary for a 2 hour period of time. Pricing for parking after the 2 hours is based on the parking garage company.
Volunteer at Athlete’s Village!
This location will also serve as a pre-race meet up spot and post-race “FFC Athlete Village” celebration featuring food, drinks, massage, and more… complimentary for all FFC members, charity partners, and Chicago Marathon participants, friends and family ($10 for non-members!) Please visit the link below to RSVP and get your ticket!
Gear check is available via private keyless lockers, so please familiarize yourself with our keyless locker system via this YouTube video.

Transportation to Athlete’s Village
Consider using public transportation to navigate around on race day – the CTA red/green/orange line Roosevelt station entrance is adjacent to FFC South Loop. For parking at the club, you should enter the parking garage on 11th Street (east of State Street) and adjacent to the El tracks.
