Picking up the Swag in the Bag

I registered for a race or walk! What is next?

Hopefully you have received an email confirmation from the Online Registration provider with some of the next step details on what to do, and what the Race Event organizers expecct you to do to be prepared for the road race/walk.

You should review any information contained in the email. You should also become familiar with the information about the race from their Website. No two road races are alike, and each can have different ways they process your ragistration and different rules they would like you to follow.

Key things to take note of:
Packet Pickup Dates / Times – Arrive Early! 1 hour before the race is best, less likely to stand in line.
Do I need and ID to pick up my Race packet?
Can I pickup my spouse’s race packet or a Friends race packet
