What to Expect at Packet Pick-up:

  • For Relays:  Each runner gets a packet.  At the location where packets are distributed, relay participants will check off which leg they are doing for Team Ortho records.  When you receive your packet, please note there is a chip in only one of the team member's  packets.  You will decide who starts with it.   
  • Minneapolis Marathon Gear Exchange will be available.
  • Get wristbanded for the post-race party and buy extra beer tickets.
  • Get information on purchasing shuttle and packet pickup tickets.

If you cannot attend packet pick-up:  

  • You can have your gear picked up by a friend or family member.  They MUST have a photo copy or a picture of your photo ID (texted or emailed to your phone) with them along with your bib number to pick up your packet.  
  • You can have your packet mailed to you.  It is a $24.95 convenience fee during online registration for a packet mailing.  The convenience fee will be $30 if you request the mailing after registration.  You can do this by Emailing us and clicking on "registration". Mailouts must be requested by May 15, 2014 to ensure delivery in time for the race. 
  • While there is no general race day packet pick-up, if you cannot attend any of the scheduled packet pick-ups or have anyone who can pick up for you or purchase a mailout, then, for a $30 convenience fee per person, we will have your packet waiting for you at our information/registration tent on race day.  This must be prearranged by May 28th, 2014, as only the packets of those who have prearranged this with us will be there on race day. Click here to email our registration department.  If you choose this option, please keep in mind we cannot guarantee your gear size will be available.

Tips on How to get through Packet Pick-up quickly:

  • Bring your Bib Number and Picture ID to claim your packet.
