Why wait in line on Race Day… Take advantage of Packet Pick-up! All competitors will have the opportunity to get their race-day materials at Packet Pick-up the day before the race. When you arrive, sign a waiver at the waiver tables or to speed up the process, you can download a PDF of the waiver and bring the signed waiver with you.
You will be required to show photo ID to the event staff / volunteer and in exchange for your received waiver, you will receive everything you need to race.
Packet pick-up location: Stone Mountain Sports Authority | 4235 Highway 78, Lilburn GA 30047 | (770)979-7020.
(Please note that you will not be permitted to pick up another person’s packet, nor will another person be able to pick up yours under any circumstances).
If you do not pick-up your race packet early you MUST bring a copy of your pre-registration receipt in order to avoid paying for a spectator ticket at the entry gate.
PARKING: $10 (Cash/Credit)
