Packet Pick-Up at Fleet Feet takes place on Friday, April 6th, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.!
First, a quick note on the weather: at this point, it’s looking like the incoming storm will have mostly finished storming by Saturday morning. Unless there is severe weather such as would merit a park closure, we’ll be holding the Poppy Walk rain or shine! We are preparing for rain, and will have some raincover in the picnic area, but be sure to bring your rain gear!
You can pick up your packet, which includes your t-shirt, as well as your bib if you are a timed runner, at Fleet Feet on Friday. You can also pick your packet up on race day, between 7:30 and 8:15 at the One-Mile Picnic Area.
If you have friends who would like to take part but haven’t registered yet, it’s not too late! They can register online at www.PoppyWalk.org until Thursday (tomorrow) at noon, at Fleet Feet during packet pick-up on Friday, or at the registration table in the One-Mile picnic area on Saturdaybetween 7:30 and 8:15.
Our chip-timing is provided by Under the Sun. Timed runners should wear their numbered bibs over their midsection; for best results, be sure not to cover up the bibs.
Please note that in the event of severe weather, such as would merit a park closure, notification that the Walk/Run has been cancelled will be posted here, at PoppyWalk.org, and also e-mailed to registered participants. Please note that all registration fees are non-refundable. In the event of normal weather, however, we’ll be there rain or shine!
