Package Pick-Up

Race Packages may be picked up from the Victoria Marathon Race Expo at the Victoria Conference Centre, 720 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC.

Expo dates will be announced closer to the event.

Limited package pick-up (race number and timing device only) is available to pre-registered, out-of-town entrants (Marathon, Half Marathon and 8K Road Race only) on Race Day on the Legislative Grounds next to the Gear Check Tents from 6:00 a m – 8:30 am.

Pre-registered participants can check to see if there are any shirts left at Shirt Swap at the Victoria Conference Centre on Sunday from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (while sizes last). Bring your race number with you.

Local residents will not be able to pick up packages on Race Day.

Note: For the out of town package pickup participants and/or those who have decided not to run but would still like to pick up their shirt, can do so on Sunday prior to 2:00 pm. After 2:00 on Sunday there is no shirt pickup and shirts will not be mailed out. Shirts are on first come first served basis on Sunday. Your bib number is required for Race Package Pickup.

There is no “team” package pick-up so each participant must arrange to have their package picked up at Race Package Pick-Up.

Thrifty Foods Kids Run participants pick up their race packages in the main Expo area. Please see the Kids Run page for more information on school team package pickup. Kids Run race packages are not available on Race Day.
