You may not pick up your packet on race morning without having purchased this option.

Bib # Look Up

Runners will be preassigned a race number. Due to the large number of runners, bibs will be organized by number order at packet pickup. To expedite your check-in process lookup your Bib # ahead of time. Look up your Bib # HERE.
Note: If you are running the Marathon Relay or Kids Run you will not need your Bib # at check-in. Simply proceed to the signs marked “Marathon Relay” and “Kids Run.” Marathon Relay participants will send only one representative to pick up all packets.

Items Needed for Packet Pick-Up: Proper ID for each participant

Can another runner pick up my packet for me? Yes! All they need is a copy of your ID (phone photo works, too).

What if I can’t make it to packet pick-up at all? You must pick up your packet on Friday; However, there will be race day packet pick-up at the start line starting at 5:30 a.m for an additional $5.
