Q:  What if I haven’t registered yet?
A:  Runners can still register for any event at the expo.  Race day registration is not available, so participants for Saturday races (the 5K and fun run) must register and/or pick up their packets on Friday.

A: One team member can pick up packets for the whole team.  But come on out and enjoy the fun of the expo!
