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 Find A Participant on the Frosty 5K RunSignUp page or click Frosty 5K on RunSignUp to go directly to the page. Look up your registration using your first and last name as used during registration. If you registered on RunSignUp, you can also login to view your profile and your Frosty 5K registration.
To have another individual pick up your Participant Packet:
1) Be sure your waiver is signed. If you're unsure, you can access your RunSignUp profile
https://runsignup.com/How-To/Category/All-Users/Profile and verify your registration information.
To complete your waiver:
2) Download and complete the Packet Authorization Form (form will be turned in at packet pick up)
3) Advise the person picking up the packet that they might be asked to present their ID to pick up the packet
