Can I pick up my race bib and t-shirt prior to race day?

The 2020 Krispy Kreme Challenge Expo will held the day before race day (Friday, Jan. 31) in Talley Student Union at North Carolina State University.

During Expo, participants can collect their race materials while also visiting our race sponsors, browsing our Krispy Kreme Challenge merchandise, and meeting Team K2C.

If you are picking up items at race expo, please keep the following in mind:

  • Please bring a photo ID or a picture of an ID for all the runners whose bibs you are picking up.

  • You will receive one race bib with a timing chip and one race shirt per runner registered.

  • When picking up your bib, you must know your bib number. You can find your bib number here. Please note that bib numbers will not be available until the week of the race.

  • There will be a separate table for registration transfers. If you need to transfer a registration and the original registrant is not present at the Expo, you must have written and signed consent.
