Packet Pickup FAQs

What do I need to bring with me to pick up my packet?

Every participant will receive a confirmation email the morning of Wednesday Packet Pickup.  Please bring either that email or your original confirmation email and your photo ID to pick up your packet. Don’t forget to add @hueyprun.com and @getmeregistered.com to your approved senders so that you do not miss this important email in your spam filter.

Can I authorize another person to pick up my race packet?

If you are unable to get your packet, a friend can pick up your packet with a copy of your photo ID or a copy of your registration confirmation.  Digital copies (your cell phone screen) are allowed. Please remember they can only do this at Packet Pickup on Tuesday and Wednesday and NOT Race Morning. There are no exceptions to this rule. You must be 18 years or older to proxy pick up for another runner.

What happens if I can’t race. Can I receive a refund or give my bib to someone else?

Entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. Sorry, no exceptions. Once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate. Acts of God or man that prevent the event from taking place will not result in a refund. You may not give or sell your number to anyone else.
