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!
- Where & When
Early Packet Pickup
Early packet pickup starts February 10th at Pacers Clarendon! Stop by anytime between February 10th and March 15th during store hours to pick up your goodies.
3100 Clarendon Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22201
On Site, Race Day:
To ensure you are able to register and collect your race items prior to the event, we strongly recommend you attend the packet pick up the month before at Pacers Clarendon.
Packet Pickup and Registration will be available on site the morning of the race from 7:30am to 8:55am. Expect a wait if you come race day.
- What to Expect
When you arrive at a packet pickup, ask our friendly staff to help you with your bib.
If there is a line, it should go fast. We use a dynamic bib assignment system which means all we need to know is your name and after confirming your registration, we will assign you a bib number on the spot. We won’t have to dig through a pile to find a pre-assigned bib. This definitely speeds things up.
We will give you a clear race bag along with your bib, safety pins, and premium — a race shirt, $10 Retail Buck or a thank-you for your charity donation.
You may pick up a race bag or bags for other people. No ID is required.
We cannot hold complete packets but after the race there will be opportunity to pick up your unclaimed t-shirt at Pacers Clarendon. See our Four Courts Four Miler FAQ’s for more details.
Included in Your Race Bag
Here’s the goods. We will give you a clear race bag along with your bib, safety pins, and premium — a race shirt, $10 Retail Buck or a thank-you for your charity donation.
Be sure to save the bag as you will need it to check any personal items prior to the race at the bag check area.
