Registration/Packet Pickup

Packet Pickup

ARMORY: 155 Culver Road, Rochester, NY  14620

We highly advise everyone to go to Packet Pickup.  You may pickup for others as well.  There will be day of packet pickup at the race site from 8:45AM-9:45AM.  Day of packet pickup will close at 9:45AM

Each Relay Team member will receive a bib.  None of these bibs will have the timing chip attached to it.  Your team will also receive ONE timing bib.  This timing bib will be attached to a belt and will have a timing chip attached to the back.  This belt will have to be passed & worn by each member of the team while running their respective legs.  For example, if you are running “Leg 1”, you will wear the belt with the timing bib and after you are done with your leg, you will then pass it to your team member who is running “Leg 2”, etc.  Whoever is running the final leg needs to be wearing this belt to be sure that your team time registers at the finish line.  The race belts must be handed in at the Finish Line.
