Packet Pick-Up at Fleet Feet takes place on Friday, April 5th, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
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 at Fleet Feet during packet pick-up on Friday, or at the registration table in the One-Mile picnic area on Saturday between 7:30 and 8:15.
Our sustainable chip timing is provided by the Bizz Running Company. Timed runners will be given a numbered bib and a reusable chip; the chip can be attached to their bib or tied onto their shoelaces. Chips will be collected at the Finish line!
Hydration and Snacks
Bottled water will be available at the One-Mile picnic area, but not provided along the course (except at the park drinking fountains). Hot dogs, lemonade, rice chips, bananas, and cookies will be available in the One-Mile Picnic Area.
We will be holding the Poppy Walk rain or shine!
In the event of severe weather (such as would merit a park closure), we would announce a cancellation here on PoppyWalk.org, as well as on our Facebook page. But the weather looks good right now, and we don’t anticipate that happening!
Please park outside the park before the run. If you have a parking placard and need to arrange closer parking, please call us at 342-2345 by Friday afternoon if possible.
The Poppy Walk is always a lively, family friendly event. Sheriff Kory Honea will be starting off the runners and walkers! Mike Manley with Mix 95.1 will be emceeing and playing music, and Pumpkin the Miniature Therapy Horse will visit as well. Wheelchairs and strollers are welcome on the course (walkers will take off directly after runners).
