Packet pick up is on race morning only. Registered participants are required to pick up their packet before the start of the race. This includes getting your timing chip, bib and shirt. Due to Covid-19, the following procedure will take place on race morning (subject to change).

1. All participants must pick up their packet in person no more than 30 minutes prior to your assigned start wave. Please DO NOT attempt to pick up your packet early. For example, if you are starting in Wave 9 at 9:24 a.m., your packet pick up time is 8:54 a.m. Runners are welcome to arrive to the park early but must stand clear of the packet pick up area and start/finish line.
