PACKET PICK UP & REGISTRATION

PACKET PICK UP & LATE REGISTRATION

The Expo is the only place you can pick-up your registration packet. You must present a valid government-issued picture ID to pick up your packet. If the races are not filled to capacity, there will be a registration booth at the expo. There is NO race day registration.
Every participant in the Marathon, Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, 5K and Kids Marathon will receive an Official Participant Guide via e-mail, download and a printed version at the Expo. Please see the links below to get another confirmation email. Bring a print out of your confirmation email and your photo ID to the Expo to pick up your packet. A digital copy (your phone screen) is allowed.
If you cannot pick up your packet at the Expo, there will be a Proxy Packet Pick-up (picking up a packet for someone else) available. The process for Proxy Packet Pick-up is as follows. The proxy must present a photocopy or a digital copy (your phone screen) of the participant’s ID along with a copy of the participant’s confirmation. There are no exceptions to this rule. Please see FAQs section of the website for more information.

REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION

Registered Participants should receive a confirmation email during the registration process. While the only requirement is that you present your government-issued photo ID, we also recommend either printing your confirmation and bringing it to packet pickup or having a copy electronically available on your mobile device. Quick Tip: You may want to add getmeregistered.com to your email safe sender list to ensure you’re receiving any important communications regarding your participation.
