Packet Pickup

We highly recommend you pick up your race bib and packet the day before the 5K, Friday, May 11th at Pacers in Clarendon, VA in order to avoid long lines on the morning of the race.  You must have an ID for each packet you want to pick up.

More information about Packet Pickup can be found HERE.

If you do not pick up your race packet by 8:45 a.m. on the event day, you forfeit your race packet and its contents.

You MUST have a photo ID to pickup your race packet. No exceptions!!! If you are picking up a race packet for anyone else, you MUST have a copy of their photo ID as well (digital photographs on your phone are acceptable). Packets will not distributed unless a photo ID is presented.
