Expo & Packet Pickup
Who can go? Runners are welcome to bring friends and family to the expo. The more the merrier!
Friday, September 7 (11:30am-7:00pm)
Saturday, September 8 (9:00am-4:00pm).
PLEASE NOTE: if you come during peak expo hours (after work Friday, midday Saturday during the Kids Race), you will very likely need to wait in a line to receive your packet (average wait time is 10-30 minutes during peak hours). The solution? Come at off-peak hours, when you can get in/out of here in 10 minutes (if that’s your bag). Either way, please be patient, and we’ll get you through quickly and efficiently.
Where? Inside AT&T Park. Enter at the Lefty O’Doul Gate, right next to the 3rd Street Bridge
Why do I need to go? Runners will pick up their bibs, timing chips, technical tees, and bobbleheads at the expo. Only runners who opted for packet mailing can opt-out of attending the Expo. Packet mailers will receive their bibs, timing chips, and shirts in the mail 7-10 days prior to the race and will pick up their bobbleheads after the race.
Kids Race Participants (Saturday 9/8): note that kids bibs are mailed via USPS to arrive between 3-10 days from race day (if you registered prior to 7/21/18). ONLY kids who did not receive their bibs in the mail need to attend packet pickup, and ONLY need to attend on Saturday between 9am-11:30am to pick up your bib in time for your 12pm race on the field. All kids participants will be emailed detailed instructions in September.
What else happens there? Vendors, music, merriment, food, and you’re inside AT&T Park without having to pay. Also, our FedEx Kids Race & Family Relay takes place on the field at high noon Saturday (that’s 12pm for you Westernly challenged). It’s literally the cutest thing you’ll ever see, so stick around and watch.
Can I pick up my friend’s packet? Yes, we will allow you to pick up someone else’s packet. Please bring a copy of their photo ID with you to the expo (yes, a “copy” can be a cell phone image).
OBLIGATORY RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP DISCLAIMER : If you’ve participated in a race with an expo since the turn of the century, you’ve undoubtedly heard this line before, so come on and say it with us… THERE IS NO RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP. YOU MUST ATTEND THE EXPO. Why? With a race this size, there simply isn’t time to get you taken care of Sunday morning. Plus, we want you warming up and stretching out properly, rather than waiting in line for your bib.
EXPO PARKING – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
Friday & Saturday: Lot A metered parking will be available for self service. Please park yourself and use the electronic meters (cash and credit cards accepted).
Vendors will have access to ~40,000 attendees. Exhibitor rates vary based on desired participation level. Interested vendors are encouraged to contact Alyssa Nakken at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
