While there is no general race day packet pick up, if you cannot attend packet pick ups and do not have anyone who can pick up for you, then, for a $35 convenience fee per person, we will have your packet waiting for you at our information tent on race day.

Rules are as follows:

  • Available for the first 100 participants only.  (Note: If this option is still available, then you are one of the first 100 to sign up.)
  • Race Day Packet Pick Up will be only be available during the hours of 5:30AM-6:30AM on Sunday. Please note that if everyone comes at 6:30, you may be waiting in a line and miss the start of the race.
  • You must have your $35 paid and confirmed by race management by November 1.
  • You must pick up for yourself. No 3rd party pick ups.
  • Shirt sizes are not guaranteed.
  • Absolutely no race changes or transfers on race day.
  • No refunds if you decide to pick up your packet at the expo during regular hours.

You may add this option to your existing race registration by following the instructions here.
