To expedite the packet pickup process please bring your event confirmation email (or this email) with your custom QR/bar code so we can scan your child in. A printed copy is not necessary, you can have the QR/bar code up on your phone screen. If you have it on your phone please make sure the brightness is set to max for easy scanning. 

When its your turn please have your photo identification and QR code ready. If you are not prepared you may be asked to stand aside while you gather your items. 


Per USAT rules, only legal guardians of a minor 17 years old or younger may pick up a packet for a registered participant. You must show legal photo identification. We DO NOT need your child's USA Triathlon Membership Card or proof of one-day membership purchase. Verification of member is handled by our registration platform, RunSignUp. 

For relays, only one member of the relay team need to pick up the race packets. 


Your child's race packet will include:

  • 1 timing chip per registered child or relay team
  • 1 timing chip strap per registered child or relay team
  • 1 race bib
  • 1 sticker sheet with bike and helmet stickers
  • 1 swim cap
  • 2 TriTats race number temporary tattoos
  • 1 TriTats "L" or "S" temporary tattoo (indicating Short or Long course)
  • 1 summer fun pack per registered participant which includes: event shirt, full-size beach towel, water bottle, and sunglasses in a shoulder cinch bag
  • 1 wristband with your child's race number to be worn by the parent or guardian that will be claiming your child in the Kid Corral
  • 1 Typhoon Texas Waterpark wristband for your child's admission in the Waterpark after the race.

If you pre-purchased additional Waterpark tickets these will also be included in your child's race packet. Additional tickets may be purchased on race morning at the Typhoon Texas Waterpark ticket window after the race. 

Before leaving packet pickup, please double check to make sure you have everything and that the numbers match your child's assigned race number. The items that should have matching numbers include the race bib, sticker sheet, timing chip, TriTats race tattoos, and Kid Corral wristband. If you get home and realize you are missing something please contact our Packet Pickup Coordinator using the form on the packet pickup page on the race website.  

You CANNOT change your shirt size at packet pickup. Because we order everything far in advance and base our orders off your selections during registration, changes made at packet pickup may results in someone else not receiving what they ordered. Please be respectful of this. If you wish to exchange an item you may try to do so after the event at the volunteer check-in tent near the transition area. 

Check our our website to see How to Wear Your Timing Chip and Race Number Placement if you have questions about the race items. 

If you have any questions please use the link at the bottom of the email to contact us. 

Thank you for your support and we'll see you at packet pickup tomorrow!
