Registered runners must pick up their race materials in person with acceptable photo identification at the CIM Expo. We do not mail materials or give them out on race day. Only a government-issued photo identification card will be accepted (we are not requiring passports for international runners). 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.

All bibs will be sorted alphabetically by runner's last name.
