Packet pick up is located at the GNC Live Well Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, May 2, 2014 and Saturday, May 3, 2014.
All participants will be emailed a race packet confirmation ticket 1-2 weeks prior to the race weekend. Participants will need to show their email (either an electronic or hard copy) AND photo ID to pick up your participant packet - which includes the race number, participant shirt and goody bag - at the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo. Please note that race packet confirmation tickets will NOT be mailed to participants this year.
Any participant that does not receive a race packet confirmation ticket email, can look up a race number in the RaceJoy mobile app. Additionally, participants can stop at the Best Buy Technology Tunnel inside the lobby of the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo. Please note that participants who use the RaceJoy mobile app or stop at the Technology Tunnel to look up race numbers will also need to show photo ID to pick up participant packets.
If a participant is unable to pick up a packet in person during regular GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo hours, someone else may pick up on the participant's behalf. The person picking up the packet is required to provide their contact information, the participant’s race packet confirmation ticket and a copy of the participant’s photo ID.
Late packet pick up is available at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown Hotel on Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 7:00-9:00 PM ONLY. Packets will only be moved to late packet pick-up if participants complete this online form prior to race weekend. Once the form has been submitted, participants will only be able to pick-up their packet at late packet pick up; items will NOT be available at the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo. There is no race day packet pick up.
Attend a FREE speaker series while you visit the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo. Guest speakers are traveling from around the United States to make sure you're prepared for race weekend and provide valuable information about health/wellness, training and racing.
