Packet pickup & Expo

When you arrive

Packet pickup tables will be organized by bib number, with a separate table for relay teams. Individual participants can look up their bib number here — https://runsignup.com/Race/FindARunner/?raceId=14517. You will also receive an email the week before the race that includes your bib number and a QR code or barcode. Please bring that email with you to packet pickup, either on your smartphone or as a printout, so that volunteers can easily confirm your bib number and other information.

Relay teams can find their bib number by going to the Relay Teams page — https://runsignup.com/RaceGroups/14517. Search for your team name, click on your team name link, then click the down arrow next to Group Details. When you arrive at packet picket pickup, there will be a check-in table for relay teams only.

Participants are expected to know their bib number when they arrive. If you forget and don’t bring the message with your bib number and QR code, you can go to our Information table, and we’ll help you as soon as we can, but your packet pickup experience will go much quicker and smoother if you have your bib and QR code with you.

You must have an ID to pick up your packet. If you need to pick up a packet for someone else, you must have a signed note from that entrant.

Plan to check out the many vendors selling running shoes, clothing and other supplies. Throughout the expo, you will find organizations and volunteers handing out goodies and swag for your goodie bag.

Directions/parking

Take I-295 to Exit 6B (Forest Avenue North), and then take the first left onto Bedford Street to park in the USM garage, which will be open on both Saturday and Sunday.

For those of you who will be using a GPS to find your way to the race, enter 88 Bedford St. to get directions to the USM garage, or 66 Falmouth St. for Sullivan Gym, which host the race expo and Saturday packet pickup. Please note that parking is limited next to Sullivan gym. The USM garage is the primary location for parking on race day and when visiting the expo/packet pickup.

Please do not park in the Hannaford shopping center lot, which is reserved for store customers. Also, we urge everyone to arrive as early as possible on race day to minimize traffic backups.
