Packet Pickup Information:
When you arrive at packet pick up for the Run for Remembrance 5K, look for a special table manned by our friendly events staff and volunteers. If there is a line, it should move quickly. 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.
You may pick up a bib or bibs 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.
Registration will not be available on site the morning of the race due to restrictions imposed when hosting events on National Park Service sites.
Use the clear bag check bag that was provided to you at Packet Pickup to stow your stuff. We will have a sectioned-off, attended area near the Start Line. Though we will have attendants monitoring the area, Pacers Running will not be responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items. Please bring no valuables. The Bag Check area will shut down at 10:00 am. Any uncollected items will be taken to Pacers Clarendon. After one week all items will be donated.
What better way to preserve your memories from your race experience than with quality photos capturing you in action and as you celebrate your accomplishment?
At every race, we partner with Swim Bike Run Photo to provide top-notch photo-booth and event images to you for free! Check back after the race to see your photos
