Runners must pass through the expo area to pick-up their shirts, bib number and timing chip. The expo area is not limited to just the running participants , but free and open to the public. Runners must bring their e-card (sent via email just prior to race day to pick up their packets. THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN YOUR CONFIRMATION EMAIL  YOU  RECEIVED WHEN YOU COMPLETED YOUR REGISTRATION.  You can present your e-card on your smart device or printed out.   Details on when e-cards will be delivered and what to do if you do not get one will be included in your Runners Handbook. Free parking for expo days is available in lots F, G, and H adjacent to the stadium. Upon arrival at the Nava Health and Vitality Expo, runners can find great prices on shoes, apparel, active gear, nutritional supplements and running goodies in addition to exhibits and other information on health care products and programs. PICK UP FOR A FRIEND: You may pick up the race packet for ONE (and only one) other runner ONLY IF you have a copy of their e-registration and a copy of their photo ID. Relay members may pick up for their entire team with proper documentation. You will need to coordinate getting the e-registration & ID from the other runners. The race staff WILL NOT be able to provide access to e-registration card information of runners who are not present.
