Find your bib number assignment (July)

Bib number confirmations will be sent in batches beginning in July.

Look in your email inbox for a bib number confirmation email with the subject line “Your Bib Number Assignment”.

All participants who did not select bib mailing must pick up their race packet (bib, timing chip, race shirt, and sweats drop-off bag) at the Health & Fitness Expo.

  • You will need to bring your photo ID for pickup.
  • If you are unable to attend packet pick up, a friend or family member may attend for you, they will need your bib number and a copy of your ID.
  • Race Day pick-up will not be available

If you added bib delivery to your registration and do not receive it before race weekend, please come see us at expo/packet pick-up for bib reassignment.
