packet pick up
Learn about PACKETS & bib assignments
Every racer will receive a race bib, but gear and size selection is offered first-come, first-served to the first 500 to pick up their race packet. We encourage you to send a designated person to pick up all packets for your group. Use the below map to find us easily.
Avoid the lines, race day rush, and get first dibs on available gear and sizes by attending our early packet pick up event! Meet the Race of Hope Event Crew at The Mandel Recreation Center on the "North Colonnade", Friday, 2/17/23 from 12:00 - 5:30 p.m. Your next chance to pick up your race packet will be on race day.
Registration will be available at Early Packet Pick Up & on race day. Sorry, no gear size swaps are available after gear has been provided.
EARLY PACKET PICK UP TIP:
• 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. local schools line up creating traffic & restricted parking. Avoid this time if you're in a hurry.

Each bib is specifically assigned to a runner's name, gender, and age group for official race timing purposes and should not be swapped or traded. Be sure to confirm you're wearing the bib assigned to you vs. someone else’s in your group.
If you wear a bib that is not assigned to you, the race results will be wrong & the award ceremony will be delayed or incorrect.
HOW TO WEAR YOUR BIB:
Bibs should be worn on your front below your rib cage and above you hips. Secure your bib with at least 3 safety pins from the holes at each corner to your outermost clothing layer. Plan your race day outfit so that if you shed clothing layers, your bib can still be seen.
Your race bib has a digital chip attached to the back that communicates with the race timer's equipment after the race starts. Do not fold your bib to avoid damaging the device. No matter the time you start your race, your time tracking will only begin when you cross the starting line and stop when you cross the finish line. Your total NET time will determine your final race performance compared to all other racers in your same age division and gender.
FIND YOUR STARTING LINE POSITION
The start line chute is broken down into 7 corral sections displaying a race pace. Before the race begins, position yourself inside corral number that best matches your anticipated race pace or finish time. Only elite runners with the potential of winning the race should select Corral #1. If you arrive with a pet or stroller, no matter your pace, report to the back of the final corral.
