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

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.  

2. To reduce the number of people at packet pick up, only registered participants themselves are permitted to pick up their packet. No exceptions. A photo ID will be required to pick up your packet. 


To ensure runner safety and to reduce the amount of passing during the first few miles of the race, participants have been placed into waves of 25 people based on their average pace per mile as entered on the registration form. Each wave will consist of both 5 & 10 Miler runners. Participants must start in their assigned waves. The wave assignment list will be published and sent to participants via email one week prior to race day. If your average pace is list incorrectly but only by 30 seconds or so, please remain in your assigned wave. If you feel strongly that you should be placed in a different wave, please email us at racedirector@ripitevents.comStarting in the same wave with a friend or spouse NOT considered a valid reason to request a wave change.
