All registered ASA RunFest registered participants get a Race Preparation Packet that includes your: race number, event details, participant instructional materials and your race day t-shirts.
Packets are available for pick-up one day prior to the race, during the dates and times at any of the locations listed below.
T-shirt sizes are first come, first served so it pays to pick up early!
Early pick-up also helps ensure that you’ll arrive on race day in time to greet the athletes, meet up with your friends and teams – and most importantly – ready to participate in your registered event!

The ASA 5K was born out of the four-year running of the popular Hope's Heroes 5K. It remains the same community athletic event celebrating what is possible.
Proceeds from the event go to Athletes Serving Athletes to further their work empowering athletes living with disabilities to cross the finish line in mainstream running and triathlon events.
Please no roller blades, skates, bikes, dogs, pets or headphones allowed on the race course. Your race number must be worn on your front and must be visible. DO NOT exchange or give your number to another participant.
