Packet Pickup Details
Advance Bib Pickup -- For your convenience early PPU will start October 26 -- you can collect your race packet during store hours at Pacers Clarendon or Pacers 14th Street.
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 Pacers Clarendon or 14th St, 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.
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.
You may pick up a race packet 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 Veterans Day 10k FAQ’s for more details.
