2015 Giant Race Expo & Bib Pick Up
Who can go? Runners are welcome to bring friends and family to the expo. The more the merrier!
When? Friday, August 21 (11:30am-7:00pm) and Saturday, August 22 (9:00am-4:00pm).
Where? Inside AT&T Park. Enter at the Lefty O'Doul Gate, right next to the 3rd Street Bridge
Why do I need to go? Runners will pick up their bibs, timing chips, technical tees, and bobbleheads at the expo. Only runners who opted for packet mailing by July 13th can opt out of attending the Expo. They will receive their bibs, timing chips, and shirts in the mail 7-10 days prior to the race and will pick up their bobbleheads after the race.
What else happens there? Vendors, music, merriment, food, and you're inside AT&T Park without having to pay. Also, our FedEx Kids Race & Family Relay takes place on the field at high noon (that's 12pm for you Westernly challenged). It's literally the cutest thing you'll ever see, so stick around and watch.
Can I pick up my friend's packet? Yes, we will allow you to pick up someone else's packet. Please bring a copy of their photo ID with you to the expo (yes, a "copy" can be a cell phone image).
EXPO PARKING? Expo parking is free in Lot A for up to 30 minutes. If you stay longer, normal metered parking rates apply, and there's a machine that tells you what to do. PLEASE NOTE: if you come during peak expo hours (lunch hour Friday, after work Friday, late Saturday), you will very likely need to be here longer than 30 minutes. The solution? Come at off-peak hours, when you can get in/out of here in 15 minutes (if that's your bag).
OBLIGATORY RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP DISCLAIMER: If you've participated in a race with an expo since the turn of the century, you've undoubtedly heard this line before, so come on and say it with us...THERE IS NO RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP. YOU MUST ATTEND THE EXPO. Why? With a race this size, there simply isn't time to get you taken care of Sunday morning. Plus, we want you warming up and stretching out properly, rather than waiting in line for your bib.
Vendors will have access to ~25,000 participants and their families. Exhibitor rates vary based on desired participation level. Interested vendors are encouraged to contact Scott Anderson at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
