Race Day Packet Pick-Up

We do offer race morning packet pick up for $20. We would prefer you pick up prior to race morning (we cannot handle 2000 people picking up on race morning), however do understand this may not be reasonable. Charging $20 will help keep the number of race day pick ups within reason. To sign up for this option please click HERE.

Can a friend pick up my packet?

Yes. The runner will need to fill out and sign our Waiver/Packet Pick-Up Release form and friend/family member will need to bring the form and a copy of the persons photo id.
