Packet Pick-up

Participants in the Quantico 12K are required to pick up bib, timing tag and other materials prior to event day. To facilitate the pick up, runners must show the E-card, either printed out or displayed on a phone.


Packet Pick-up will be conducted on Friday, August 23 from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Fowler Hall, the MCM headquarters building, located aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico. All participants will be required to pick up event packets on this date including the official bib with timing tag.

Runners are encouraged to attend Packet Pick-up prior to event day. There will be limited event morning Packet Pick-up available at the event site beginning at 5:00 a.m. Runners must bring the official E-Card to Packet Pick-up. E-cards will be emailed prior to Packet Pick-up. Extended wait times to obtain a packet on event morning could delay participation in Quantico 12K.

The individual picking up the bib for a registered runner must present a hard copy of the completed E-card with a copy of the runner's photo ID, as well as a copy of his/her ID. Please obtain the runner's preferred shirt size. E-Cards are emailed to the registered runner before the event.
