Packet Pick Up
We will have two packet pick up times for our racers. You may come to either pick up time.
Friday, March 11th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The Friday night packet pick up will be held in the lobby of Candlewood Suites located at 4108 Legend Ave in Fayetteville. This pick up time is best for those who would like to get their t-shirt before race day and our sleepwalkers. If you are running the 1 mile fun run with the lite registration (you have opted out of a race shirt), you will not have a packet to pick up (see notes for the March 12th packet pick up). We will also be registering runners at this packet pick up – so if you have a friend who hasn’t signed up and would like to run, bring them with you to register!
Saturday, March 12th from 6:30 am to 7:00 am. The race day packet pick up will be held at the race staging area located at St. Ann Catholic School, 365 N. Cool Springs St. (Please read parking notes below). This packet pick up time is best for those who are coming from out of town to race. Please note that those who are running the 1 mile fun run should check in at this packet pick up. We will also be registering runners at this packet pick up – so if you have a friend who hasn’t signed up and would like to run, bring them with you to register!
Race Day Parking
N. Cool Springs St. will be blocked for the race. Please park at the Cumberland County Courthouse. Parking for the Courthouse is located on S. Cool Springs St. between Person St. and Russell St. (The official address is 117 Dick St. for GPS directions.) To get to the race staging area, please walk down S. Cool Springs St. towards Person St., go around the roundabout and continue onto N. Cool Springs St. which will take you to St. Ann’s. The walk is approximately 1/2 mile. There is a map attached to this email illustrating the parking and race start locations.
Lockers for Wallets, Cell Phones, and Other Personal Items
For your convenience, we offer a “locker” service. Runners will be able to check any personal items for safe-keeping before starting the race. In addition to race shirts and medals for sale, we will have a table selling coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and baked treats.
Free Family Activities
Be sure to check out our free family activities, which include pedal cars and the Mobitainment gaming truck. We will also have a variety of vendor tables that we encourage you to visit.
While we have made every effort to make sure that the routes are clearly marked we recommend reviewing the route before the race. You can find the route at http://www.fayettevilleshamrockrace.com/schedulemaps
Remember to show yer luck o’ de Irish. The top 2 costumes will be awarded a prize.
