Packet Pick-Up Information

We will be conducting packet pickup on Thursday April 26th at Podium Multisport from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm; at All3Sports from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm; the day before the race (Friday) from 12:00 pm until 7:00 pm; and on race day from 6:00 am until 7:30 am at John Tanner Park. Check in closes promptly at 7:30 am so please make sure you allow time for parking and check in.  Timing chips will only be available on race day morning. If you pick up your packet prior to race day morning, you will simply need to present your race number at the race on race day morning to pick up your timing chip.

Remember only you can pick up your packet and no one else. USAT requires all participants to pick up their own packet with photo ID and USAT card. If you are on a relay team, all members need to be present when picking up the packet. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we must be in compliance with USAT on this important issue.

Podium Multisport is located at 1167 Zonolite Pl NE, Unit A2, Atlanta, GA 30306.

All3Sports is located at 8601 Dunwoody Place, Suite 450, Atlanta, GA 30350 in the Northridge Business Park.  (This is an office park. Turn into the entrance across the street from the QT gas station, and we're in the front of the 400 building which sits up on the hill.)

When you pick up your packet at Podium Multisport or All3Sports on Thursday, you are automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to win an All3Sports PRIZE PACK to be awarded on race day.
