We will have limited packet pickup located near the start/finish area Sunday, October 8 on race day from 8:00am-10:00am. Please arrive early to avoid lines and allow us to begin the race on time.
If you are picking up a packet for yourself or for a friend, make sure to know the bib number to help expedite the packet pickup process. Bib numbers are emailed to all registered participants one week prior to race day.
In our ongoing effort to eliminate waste during our races, our expos are bagless events. We encourage you to #BYOBag to hold your bib, race shirt, and any goodies you pick-up at packet pickup and on race day!
For runners want to represent the Keystone State! RunPA.org will be selling trucker hats on race day.
Q: Can someone else pick up my race packet for me at packet pickup?
A: Yes! We are here to make your life easier. Someone else may pickup your packet as long as you provide them with an acceptable form of verification to show our staff.
- Bib number email or written permission to pickup packet
Q: Can I transfer my bib to another runner if I am not able to run?
A: Yes! We understand that unexpected circumstances come up, although you will be missing all of the fun! In order to request a transfer, you must obtain written permission. Transfers will be only honored with written permission from the original bib owner. An acceptable form of written permission is an email from the current bib holder giving permission to give up their bib and process the transfer to another individual.
We will NOT process bib transfers at packet pick-up or on race day. The deadline for all transfers is Monday, October 1, 2018 at midnight (EST). No transfers will be processed after this date. No exceptions. All transfers are processed online and a $10.00 processing fee will be applied.
