PACKET PICKUP:

Effective for the 2015 season and in order to race, MEC will be supplying a race bib and shoe chip timer. All racers must pick up their race bibs themselves. All registered racers must wear their race bib in order to run and must wear the shoe chip timer on their shoe in order to get timed. You can pick up your packet at any of the below times. Important: You must pick your chip up on race day. Chips are really expensive and this reduces loss. Your packet includes your bib. If you pick up your packet before race day, you can by-pass the bib line when you arrive. Here are the times that you can pick up your packet.

CHIP-PICKUP:

Chip pickup is at the race only between 7:30am – 8:45am. This will time your race. Here is a YouTube how to video on how to attach your chip to your shoe.

CAN I PICK UP MY FRIENDS PACKET?

Everyone must pick-up their own packet. This reduces the chance of theft. If you would like to pick-up someone else’s packet, you must have a photocopy of their ID that is signed. Everyone can pick up their packet on the day of the race. Since MEC races are smaller, the wait times to pick up your packet on race day is minimal. This can be done between 7:30am – 8:45am.

PARKING:

Parking is available downtown Barrie in several lots adjacent to Heritage Park (parking fees apply based on City of Barrie By-Laws).

BATHROOM FACILITIES:

There will be portable toilets available onsite.
