Packet Pick Up
To pick up your race t-shirt:
Pick up your bib number first, so our volunteers can tear off and collect the t-shirt claim tab on your bib. If you had your bib number mailed to you before the Expo, you MUST BRING YOUR BIB NUMBER with you to the Expo, so that we can collect your t-shirt tab.
Race t-shirts can also be picked up on Race Day, after you complete the race at the Michelob Ultra RaceFest in City Park.
To pick up your Commemorative Print:
Please bring your registration confirmation email, showing your order and that you purchased a print when registering, and pick up your poster from the CCC poster booth at the Expo. These will not be available for pickup at the RaceFest or anywhere on race day. All posters that are not picked up will be held at the CCC office for post-race pickup.
If you pre-ordered RaceFest Passes:
Please bring your registration confirmation email, showing your order and that you purchased additional RaceFest Passes when registering, and pick up at Registration counters at the Expo. All passes that are not picked up at the Expo, will be held at the door of the Festival.
To pick up your bib number:
Please bring a photo I.D. or your registration confirmation email
To pick up someone else's bib number:
You must bring a photocopy of their I.D. or their registration confirmation email
What do I need to bring with me to the Expo in order to pick up my bib number, T-shirt, or poster?
You should bring proof of your registration confirmation. In order to pick up your t-shirt, you must have your bib number with you (there is a t-shirt claim tab on the bib that must be taken in exchange for your shirt), so if you had your number mailed to you, you MUST bring this with you to the Expo to receive your race t-shirt. To pick up your poster, please have confirmation that you ordered one.
Can a friend pick up my bib number?
If you cannot make it to the Expo, you can have a friend pick up your bib number and t-shirt for you. Please just provide them with a photocopy of your I.D. or your email confirmation for the event. THERE IS NO OPTION TO PICK UP YOUR BIB NUMBER ON RACE MORNING, so please make sure that someone is available to come to the Expo on the Thursday or Friday before Race Day, so you can participate.
Can I pick up my t-shirt while I am at the Expo?
YES! The Expo is the recommended place for t-shirt pickup, as we cannot guarantee that we will have your size on Race Day. Remember, you MUST have your bib number with you in order to pick up your t-shirt. NO EXCEPTIONS!
