Pre Race

NEW 2018 EXPO LOCATION- PATRICK HENRY HOTEL (Downtown Roanoke)

We strongly encourage all runners to pick up their own race packet at the Packet Pick Up and Expo on Friday at the Patrick Henry Hotel from 3:00 pm to 8:00pm. It is important for runners to verify their data and make any necessary changes. However, if it is not possible for you to pick-up your own packet, you may have someone pick it up for you. That person will be responsible for verifying personal race information (name, age, birthdate, etc.) and MUST bring a copy of your drivers license (or valid photo ID).
