A Note on 10K Package Pick-Up
As a Pacer, you do not need to go to Scottsdale Fashion Square to pick up your race day package. Read on for more details on where to get your Race Kit Package.
At the Pre-Race Celebration (Fri, Now 10 – see details below), we will have a Race Kit Package ready for you to take home. In the package, your pacer shirt, pacer bottoms, footwear, and more surprises.
We recommend that you try these items on early on Saturday so that we can support if you need additional items.

While we do expect Scottsdale to be warm, it may be cool in the morning, so bring layers. You can leave any extra layers in the Green Room.
