Packet Pickup

Pre-Race Packet pickup will be held on Friday September 15th at Wicked Wolf between the hours of 6 and 8 PM. The address is 120 Sinatra Dr, Hoboken, NJ 07030. 

Race day packet pickup will begin at 8:45 AM at the race check-in area (the north-east corner of Pier A Park), and end by 9:50. 

To limit our impact on the environment, Packet Pickup will be bagless. Your "packet" will include only your epic race bib, some safety pins, and the race t-shirt you selected at checkout (if you ordered one). 


Directions & Parking

The 5K events will start and finish at "Pier A Park" in Hoboken NJ. The check-in and festival area (i.e., packet pickup, delicious pizza) will be on the north-east corner of the Pier.

For drop off (e.g., Uber) you should utilize "100 Sinatra Dr, Hoboken, NJ 07030" as your GPS address. Though, be mindful that course roads will be closing around 9:00 AM and being dropped off a block or so from the venue may be best.

For those taking public transit (e.g., Path, Lightrail), Pier A Park is a 1 or 2 minute walk north out of Hoboken Terminal.

For those driving themselves or otherwise in need of parking for their driver / friends / fam, metered street parking is available on first come first serve basis.  Hoboken Municipal Garage B is the closest garage to the venue, and likely the most convenient parking solution; the address for this parking facility is "28 2nd street, Hoboken, NJ, 07030".


Bag Check

You are encouraged not to bring bags to the race, but we will offer bag check for $5 via exact cash or Venmo. Card readers will not be on site.
