​​​​​​​​​Packet Pick-Up Info
To pick up your own race packet, NO PAPER REQUIRED.   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 advance 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-NO MORE PAPER REQUIRED!

     Send a text or email to the person who will be picking up your race packet (or you can still provide them with a note or the authorization form) and have them tell your bib number to the volunteer at advance packet pick up and show the text or email as verification.
