packet pick-up

April 3, 3-7p

Expo: Hattiesburg Train Depot (308 Newman St)

Race packets can be picked up at the Train Depot on Friday, April 3th from 3:00-7:00pm. Bring your ID if you are 21 or older so we can verify your age for alcohol beverages. Parking is available at the Train Depot (308 Newman St).


Alternative race packet pick up will be at the designated packet pick up tent near the start/finish line from 5:30-6:30am on race day. Don't forget your ID if you are 21 or older and planning on having access to alcohol beverages.


You may have someone pick up your race packet for you, however, if you do this and are 21 or older wanting to take advantage of your free alcohol beverages, you must come to the volunteer tent near the start/finish line to get your ID checked. 


Plan to register and pick up your packet before race day. Please do not call the location of the packet pick up - if you have questions, please call (601) 583-6180.
