PACKET PICKUP RULES
- Packet Pickup the day before is MANDATORY unless you pay $20 during registration to have your packet waiting for you the morning of the race. You can login to your RSU account after you’ve registered and add this on as long as you are doing so at least 2-weeks before the race. Please visit our HOW-TO section of our website to learn how to do this if you don't know how.
- Those that pay $20 via their registration will have their packet ready for them race morning. Specific instructions will be sent out within 24-hours of the race to those the select this option with details of where to go and how to claim your packet on race morning.
- We have 1-day of packet pickup, from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM the day before, each of our races.
- ***NEW*** You may pickup for someone else if you would like from this point going forward. This means family and friends can pickup for loved ones if they cannot make it in time and teammates can pickup their entire team packet even if their teammate is not present. All that's required is their QR code for their entry that's sent out the week of the race, a photo/copy of their photo ID and a text or email granting you permission to do so.
- You MUST have a valid government issued photo ID of some kind to pickup your packet.
- You DO NOT have to show a valid USAT membership card.
- Please have the QR code we send you ready for scanning. It makes for a faster moving line.
- Teammates DO NOT have to pickup their packet together.
- Those who rented wetsuits as an add-on to their registration may pick them up at packet pickup.
- Your Mandatory Gear is not checked at packet pickup. We are all adults and we trust each person has what is required of them on the race course. We do perform random gear checks during the event and anyone found without the mandatory gear is disqualified.
- We sell merchandise at all our packet pickups and at the finish line the day of the race.
- Please return your timing chip, restube (solo only), and wetsuit (if you rented one) once you cross the finish line on race day.
