Expo & Packet Pickup
HEALTH & WELLNESS EXPO
SEPTEMBER 6TH & 7TH
Join us at the 2019 San Francisco Giant Race Health & Wellness Expo for a weekend of fun and fitness at Oracle Park! In order to celebrate our 10th anniversary, we’ll be offering a variety of fitness classes on the field along with vendors, music, merriment, food and you’ll experience this iconic ballpark without having to pay. Also, our Kids Race & Family Relay will take place on the field at noon on Saturday (9/7). It’s literally the cutest thing you’ll ever see, so stick around and watch.
*Runners are welcome to bring friends and family to the expo. The more the merrier!

PACKET PICK-UP INSTRUCTIONS FOR:
5K, 10K & HALF MARATHON PARTICIPANTS
Runners must present their photo ID to pickup their bibs, timing chips, technical tees, and bobbleheads at the expo.
Runners must take the shirt size printed on their bib. T-shirt exchanges will not be made until Race Day.
*If you cannot attend the expo, we will allow friends and family to pickup a packet on behalf of the runner. Please bring a copy of their photo ID with you to the expo (yes, a “copy” can be a cell phone image).
*Race Day pickup will not be available. With a race this size, there simply isn’t enough time to get you taken care of on Sunday morning. We want you warming up and stretching out properly, rather than waiting in line for your bib.
* 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 5-10 days prior to the race and will pick up their bobbleheads after the race.There is no race day packet pick-up. Parents of children under 18 who are participating may pick up their packets for them. The deadline to opt for Packet Mailing was 7/18.
KIDS RACE PARTICIPANTS
Kids bibs are mailed via USPS and will arrive 5-10 days prior to race day (if you registered prior to 7/18). ONLY kids who did not receive their bibs in the mail need to attend packet pick-up, 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.

HEALTH & WELLNESS EXPO LAYOUT
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. Either way, please be patient, and we’ll get you through quickly and efficiently.
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).
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 IF YOU HAVE NOT OPTED FOR BIB MAILING
The deadline to opt for Bib Mailing was 7/18. If you are unable to attend the Health and Wellness Expo, friends and family are permitted to pick-up a packet on behalf of the runner. Please bring a copy of their photo ID with you in addition to a copy of their registration (yes, a “copy” can be a cell phone image).
