Packet Pick Up, Parking and More

Packet pick up will be at the Hutzell Athletic Center on the campus of the University of St. Francis on Wednesday evening from approximately 5:45 PM to 8 PM.

You may also pick up your packet race morning. Your bib is your timing chip. That is, the Gobbler was the first to offer D-Tag timing last year - this year, we are putting the RFID tag ON the bib. This should save some time and make packet pick up even smoother than last year.

Please give our volunteers a little breathing room Wednesday night, if you can. Arriving after 6:15 PM will help us to keep the flow moving.

Also, be thinking about parking on race morning. It appears that the Galloping Gobbler will be serving in excess of 2,000 runners. You may park near Hutzell early, but think about parking at the North Campus building off Spring Street or the football parking near Lindenwood Avenue and Spring. It is an easy walk to the Hutzell center from those parking areas.

One other item to start thinking about: due to the large number of participants, runners will be finishing on Leesburg Road. So, you will NOT be able to exit Leesburg after the race and head south. You may want to start looking at the map and seeing how you will leave the campus after the race by utilizing Spring Street!
