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? It is HIGHLY recommended to pick up your packet on Saturday; However, there will be race day packet pick-up at the start line starting at 5:45 a.m. If you registered after November 6, you must have purchased race day packet pick-up with your race registration for an additional $5.

If you are picking up on race day PLEASE arrive one hour prior to your start time. Same-day packet pick-up will close 15 minutes before each race.

If you registered AFTER NOVEMBER 6 and you wish to pick up your packet on Sunday (race morning) and DID NOT purchase race day packet pickup. Click HERE to learn how to add it to your registration.
