Miles to McCormick Walk/Run Challenge

Time to Get Moving!

Get moving with the Miles to McCormick Walk/Run Challenge. Just because PACK EXPO Connects is virtual doesn’t mean you can’t get moving. A special gift card prize provides a little more incentive to meet your goal.


In this fun and free event, participants log steps in real life and then view progress against others on an online route from O’Hare Airport to McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. It isn’t so much a race, as it is motivation to get some movement during the virtual event experience. Participants who log their walks/runs at least three times or complete the trail to McCormick Place will be entered to win one of three, $150 gift cards for a Chicago-themed food treat. Good luck. To participate, separate registration is required.
