Expo/Packet Pick-up • Saturday, October 12
11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
A Race Expo will be held at Scranton High School on Saturday, October 12th, between 11:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Please make every possible attempt to pick up your race packet (bib number, timing chip and souvenir shirt) at the Expo!
You will be asked to show your I.D. at packet pick-up. If you ask a friend to pick up your packet, they will be asked to show their I.D. and sign for your packet.
Due to the tragic events at the 2013 Boston Marathon and with the safety of our runners, volunteers, and spectators in mind, The Steamtown Marathon race committee has banned knapsacks, gym bags, duffle bags, drawstring bags and any and all similar non-transparent bags and sacks on our buses, at the starting line and at the finish line. Please leave such bags at home. Clear plastic bags will be available at the race expo and at the starting line for your use.
The Expo will be staffed with an army of volunteers to process your packet pick up as quickly as possible. If an emergency prevents you from attending the Expo, you will be allowed to pick up your packet inside Forest City High School at the starting line on race morning. However, expect long, stressful lines at the packet pick up table on race morning as most of our volunteers will be tending to race activities.
Running merchandise will be available for sale and professionals in the fields of nutrition and sports medicine will offer free consultation to competitors. Large course maps will be on display. Free parking will be available in the school’s large parking lot.
World class distance runner Jon Sinclair and Race Director Bill King will give a presentation about the Steamtown Marathon course at the Expo at 2:00 p.m. (sharp). Jon and Bill will also lead an easy 3 mile run around Downtown Scranton on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Meet Jon and Bill at the main entrance of Scranton High School (the Expo site) at 9:55 a.m. sharp. The run will take you past the finish line and through the Steamtown National Historic Site.
