To pick up your packet bring your ID and a printed or digital copy of your confirmation email with the QR code on it. If you can’t make it, you can send a friend (as long as you’ve already signed your online waiver ) with a copy of your ID and your confirmation email/QR code. Race day packet pick up is available, but let’s face it– waiting in line for ages just plain sucks when all you want to do is run and get wicked.
