Advance Packet Pick-Up – TBA
Two advance packet pick-ups will be offered this year! The first will be offered at the Kilwins Town Center location. Stay tuned for more details!
As always, we will be providing an advance drive-thru packet pick-up on Friday, March 27 at Clarke's Mandarin location. Just pull up to the designated area with your printed registration confirmation page and volunteers will provide you with a goody bag, your shirt and bib. You won't even have to get out of your car! If you don’t have your registration confirmation email to print, please write the registered name on a piece of paper to hand the volunteer as you pull up to the Clarke tent. You may pick-up for other people, but please have their printed registration page or their name written down on your list. If you are picking up for more than eight (8) people, we ask that you park and come up to the Clarke tent to be processed.
Clarke Jacksonville: 9803 Old St. Augustine Road, Jacksonville, Fl. 32257
If you miss the advance packet pick-up opportunities, all packets will then be moved to the race site for race day pick-up starting at 6:30 am. We highly advise to you to pick up your packet ahead of time to avoid the lines.
