Packet Pick-Up Info
To pick up your own race packet, you will not need a copy of your confirmation email or form.  Knowing your bib number will help packet pick-up flow more smoothly for you; however, bib numbers will be posted at packet pick up and race morning.

To find your bib number and verify your registration information go to the Frosty 5K on RunSignUp  and click on the “Find Participant” button on the left menu column.  Look up your basic registration information (including age, gender, bib number) by entering first name, last name and date of birth.  If you registered on RunSignUp you can also enter your email and date of birth to view your basic registration information.

     1) Be sure your waiver is signed.  If you're unsure, you can access your RunSignUp profile
