The first 200 runners who PRE-REGISTER at this link will be able pick their bib and timing chips up on the morning of the race.  There will be NO CHARGE to do this, however, we do have to limit the numbers so our volunteers do not get overwhelmed prior to the race.

REMEMBER:  There are multiple alternate locations scattered all throughout the area to get your race bib.  We urge you to use them unless you absolutely, positively cannot pick up your packet at one of these locations. FURTHER, don’t sign up to pick up on race morning and then show up at one of the alternate locations. This will only screw up the plan and take a spot away from a fellow runner who truly needs to use it.

Here is how it will work:

  1. Pre-Register below as one of the 200 runners granted permission to use race day packet pickup
  2. Print out your e-registration card (these will be delivered to your email box prior to May 2).  YOU WILL HAVE TO bring this that day. This is an absolute requirement!
  3. Arrive at the fairgrounds NO LATER than 5:15am on Sunday May 6.  BE SURE to allow yourself enough time to drive and park. TRAFFIC IS HEAVY on race morning.  Whatever time you think you need to leave, leave at least 20 minutes before that!
  4. Race bibs and timing chips will be distributed in Building 9 from 5:15a to 6:15a– And Not A Second Longer!

This plan only works if everyone cooperates. We hope this helps the few of you who need to use this option and hope to see the rest of you at one of our 4 pre-race pick up locations.
