USAT PACKET PICKUP RULES

Per USAT rules, only legal guardians of a minor 17 year old or younger may pick up a packet for a registered participant. You must show a legal photo ID. This is NON-NEGOTIABLE and we will not allow any exceptions because we may lose our USAT sanctioning and insurance. We do not need your child's USA Triathlon membership card, verification of membership is handled by our registration platform.

 
QR CODE

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

If you do not have your QR code available, you can resend your confirmation email by visiting your RunSignUp profile page and clicking Manage Your Registration under the Typhoon Texas Kids Triathlon event.

Lines tend to be longest at the beginning of each packet pickup day. Our team will be working diligently to get everyone through the line in the quickest way possible. Please be courteous to other participants and those that have volunteered their time to help make the event a success. 

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ ALL THE INFORMATION ON THE WEBSITE & SENT IN PRE-RACE COMMUNICATION EMAILS PRIOR TO COMING TO PACKET PICKUP.

HOW TO WEAR NUMBERS

 

HOW TO WEAR TIMING CHIP

 

Before leaving packet pickup, please double check to make sure you have everything and that the numbers match your assigned race number. The items that should have matching race numbers include your sticker sheet, bib number, timing chip, and race tattoos. If you get home and realize you are missing something please email us by using the CONTACT THIS RACE button at bottom of this page.

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 result 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 tent if we have leftover items. 

 
RACE MORNING PACKET PICKUP

THERE IS NO RACE MORNING PACKET PICKUP UNLESS YOU PURCHASED THE OPTION BEFOREHAND. If you purchased race morning packet pickup you may still pick up your child's packet at any of the schedule packet pickups before the race.  There are no refunds for race morning packet pickup if you choose to pick up your child's packet early.

Race morning packet pickup will be held near the transition area in the Typhoon Texas parking lot (see Race Site Map for details). Please note that if you are picking up on race morning you must still have your child prepared to begin the race at the scheduled time. Applying race numbers and temporary tattoos take time so please plan accordingly. The event WILL NOT be delayed for those arriving late to pick up their packets on race morning. 

Race morning packet pickup can still be purchased as an add-on until 11:59pm on Saturday, April 10th or until we've reached the limit for race morning packet pickup. After that time (or sellout), registration for race morning packet pickup will be closed and no more purchases will be allowed. Space for race morning packet pickup is limited to 100 children each day. This is to ensure we can have everyone properly checked in before the scheduled start time.
