Answers to Our Most Common Questions

How do I volunteer to help with packet pickup? Thanks for asking ;-) Email us here!

How do I pick up MY packet? Look up your bib number (AVAILABLE CLOSER TO RACE DAY!) out here early race week (we'll post it then) and bring that to give to the volunteer.

How do I pick up ANOTHER PERSON'S packet? If picking up for another person, bring a signed note or printed email giving permission from that person, and please have their bib number handy. DO NOT email the race email address giving permission for them to pick up.

What exactly am I picking up? Racing bib, safety pins, event shirt, timing chip (which is attached to the bib), and flyers from our sponsors.

We will not have maps or any other website information available printed out at packet pickup or in your race packet. It's environmentally wasteful when such information is so easily available here on this site. It is your responsibility to print off the info you or spectating family/friends will need from our website.

What if I don't like the shirt size I requested during registration? We guarantee the shirt size you signed up for. If we have extras in other sizes, you may swap. If not, you may bring the unworn shirt to Saturday's race and swap AFTER the latest race (the 5K) has started. We'll set up an area in the Information/Awards tent for that purpose. At that point, we can swap out of the packets of those who did not pick up.

I'm picking up for a group. What do I do? If picking up for 5 or more people during race week packet pickup, we ask you to please not come right when pickup opens. That's usually when the line is the longest and volunteers are just learning the ropes so filling packets is a little slower. Email us very early race week and we may even be able to save you and our volunteers' time by pre-filling the packets!
