Packet Pickup FAQ's:

Q: Can someone else pick up my race packet for me at packet pickup on Thursday, April 25 or Friday, April 26 at the Ramada?

A: Yes! We are here to make your life easier. Someone else may pickup your packet as long as you provide them with some form of verification to show our staff.

Accepted Items:

-Copy of the bib number email
-Copy of ID
Q: If I am 21+ and am planning on drinking on race day, can I get my ID checked and have my wristband placed on me so that I don't have to wait in the ID check line on race day?  Can I also receive a drinking bracelet for a fellow Lager Jogger who could not make it to packet pickup?
A. We will be checking IDs and placing drinking wristbands on you at packet pickup on Friday, April 26 only.  We cannot give you a drinking bracelet for other Lager Joggers for whom you may be picking up their packets since our staff will have to physically put it on you.  Those (21+) who come to packet pickup on Thursday or cannot make it to packet pickup on Friday must get their ID checked on race day and have a wristband placed on them on race day at the ID check station.   

Bib Transfer Policy:

We will NOT be processing bib transfers at packet pick-up or on race day. The deadline for all transfers is April 12, 2019 at midnight (EST). No transfers will be processed after this date. No exceptions. All transfers are processed online and a $10.00 processing fee will be applied.

In order to request a transfer, you must obtain written permission. Transfers will be only honored with written permission from the original bib owner. An acceptable form of written permission is an email from the current bib holder giving permission to give up their bib and process the transfer to another individual.

To request a transfer, please email Once the request has been made, a link will be sent to you to complete the new registration online.
