You may have someone else pick up your packet for you by following a few simple steps:
- Complete the Race Packet Pick-up Authorization Form.
- Have your “friend” bring the form along with a copy of your photo ID to YOUR designated alphabetical line at the Expo.
- If your ‘friend’ does not have your signed authorization form and a copy of your photo ID, they will not be able to pick up your packet.
