Packet Pickup Details
Before a race we need to pass along a few items to you and it is tough to pull that off an hour before the event. Visiting us in advance will help us make sure you are all set for race day. It is a good chance for you to ask any questions you may have and pick up any gear you might need. We often have packet pickup sales and otherwise try to make it worth your while to make the trip.
Please note that the packet pickup location(s) vary from race to race. So, be sure to double check where you need to go!
Early Packet Pick Up
will be available starting November 17th at the Fairfax Pacers location.
