Packet Pick-Up Option

In an effort to accommodate the requests from families and local runners while balancing the security and logistical needs of a major participatory event, we did offer the option to reserve Race Day Packet Pickup on a first come, first serve basis. Unfortunately, we have reached the capacity of registrants that we can logistically accommodate on race morning.

Because we can no longer offer Race Day Pickup, we will be making a one-time exception to our packet pickup policy (for this event ONLY) and will allow friends/family to pick up the bib for another participant at the Health & Fitness Expo. In order to pick up for another participant, the attendee must have the participant’s signed confirmation sheet ( and a copy of his/her photo ID. If either of these items is not presented, the bib number will not be given out. No exceptions.


Bib number and timing tag pick up is available on race morning. This special service is limited to the first 1000 participants to make a reservation.

  • You must make a reservation through our website prior to 10/2/2015.
  • This opportunity is offered on a first come, first served basis. Once the first 1000 spots have been reserved, we will not offer any other Race Day Packet Pickup at the start line – NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Friends or family cannot pick up your packet for you on race day.

If you have reserved a spot for the Race Day Packet Pickup service, please bring your signed confirmation sheet (e-mailed two weeks prior to the event) and a photo ID to the Packet Pickup tent on race morning. Packet Pickup hours are between 5am – 7am.
