When is Packet Pickup?
All packets (race bib number & event shirt) can be picked up near the start line before the race. The Day of Registration and Packet Pickup tent will be clearly marked on the Flagler Ave Boardwalk and opens at 7am. Please have your registration number (email confirmation) with you for easy pickup. You can pick up for a friend, if you have their email confirmation and copy of Driver’s License.

Will there be results posted at the race?

Will there be a Finisher Medal?

Who gets the event T-shirt?
Only pre-registered runners that successfully complete the online registration and payment processes seven weekdays before the race are guaranteed a free race t-shirt. Pre-registered runners in the seven days leading to the race are first to receive their shirt and preferred size. The remaining shirts for walk-up registrations are available until they run out. Quantities and sizes are not guaranteed for day-of registrations.

You can leave your items at the Gear Drop-Off Station, located near the start line.

Should I bring my own water?
Water is provided at a few “Water Refill Stations” near the start/finish area, as well on the 5K route (2 times). These stations have water jugs and small paper cups for use. If you feel you need more water or would like to carry a water bottle while you run, please bring your own. While on the beach, we try to limit our waste and pollution that may blow into the ocean. We encourage renewable and sustainable methods of water distribution at events to reduce our litter impact.
