Packet Pick Up
Currently enrolled GOTR and H&S program participants will have their bibs mailed directly to their schools. You do not need to attend a Packet Pick-Up event unless you have to pick up a buddy runner's bib.
Packet Pick-Up Locations and dates will be available in April.
You may also pick up bibs and t-shirts on both 5k days. All bibs must be picked up and runners checked in by 8:00AM on race day.
