You can stop by in-person registration at Arden Fair Mall between May 5th and May 11th, we are open daily 10AM-6PM – go to Center Court (outside Nordstrom) and you’ll find us under the pink balloons!

OR the registration booth opens at 6:00am on the morning of the Race, and you can pick up your items there.

Where can I pick up my team packet?

Visit the teams table at Arden Fair – but remember, packets will be pre-made only for sponsor teams and Official Team Captains that asked to have them premade.

If you haven’t requested the packet, you can show up with your team roster and collect shirts and bibs for your entire team or you can have team members pick theirs up individually.

Can I pick up my friend’s shirt and bib?

Yes, that will be fine.

Where can I get a pink back sign for "In Honor of" or "In Memory of"?

They will be available at In-Person Registration Week and Race Day at the Main Gate.

I’d like to buy Komen merchandise. Will you be selling at Arden Fair again?

There will be merchandise available at Arden Fair, plus we will have a store set up in the Expo building on Race Day. A limited number of items will also be sold next to Parking Lot C from 6-7:30 AM on Race Day.

I’ve been collecting donations – where can I drop them off?

You can bring them to in-person registration, to the Komen booth inside the Expo on Race Day, or you can mail them to First Northern Bank in Dixon (the address is on the donation form.)

Be sure to attach the form so that you get credit toward the incentives! All donations must be postmarked by May 26, 2012 to be credited for incentives.
