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!

What to Expect

When you arrive at a packet pickup event, look for a special table manned by our friendly events staff and volunteers.

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 race bag along with your bib, technical race shirt, safety pins, and some promotional materials.

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 Alexandria.  See our Parkway Classic FAQ’s for more details.

Included in Your Race Bag

Here’s the goods. Included in your race bag you will find your premium (a technical race shirt) as well as the race bib with attached timing tag and safety pins. Also, depending on what we wrangle together, there will likely be various promo flyers and/or free samples.

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.

Get Ready for the Big Day

Whether this is your first race or you have seen it all before, you signed up for this event for a reason: to challenge yourself. Whatever accomplishment you are seeking, be sure you are prepared to make the most of Race Day.  Our goal is to be the resource you need so that we can share in your celebration after you cross the finish line.  Check out the different ways we can help you reach your goal…
