Group Registration

Registering a group or team of family, friends or coworkers is easy. Here is how to create a new group or join an existing one.

Bib Mailers

For only $10, the Pat’s Run team will mail your Race Shirt, Race Bib and other merchandise to you starting the first week of April. You must register by March 20, 2023, to take advantage of this option. Please note: each individual registration will require a bib mailer; therefore, if you register three individuals in one transaction, you will need to select the mailer option for each.

Bib Numbers and Etiquette

To help the process move quickly, our volunteers ask that you have your bib number handy upon pickup. To find your bib number, simply log onto your RunSignUp.com profile where you registered and click “Manage Profile.” Your bib number will appear in your participant info. You CAN also pick up another participant’s packet; please be ready to provide their bib number as well.

Bib numbers correspond to corral numbers and will be assigned baed on estimated time or past finish times. Wheelchair participants will begin at the start of the first corral; those running or walking with strollers will be assigned placement at the back of the race.

Corral numbers correspond to their bib numbers. Corrals are one number higher than the thousands place in your bib number. If your bib number is 621, then you’ll be in corral 1. If your bib number is 6021, then you’ll be in corral 7. You can also get help at Packet Pickup and we’ll have the bib ranges posted alongside the corral numbers on race day.
