Dear Volunteer,

Thanks for joining our race crew for the San Diego Half Marathon & Padres 5K Race Packet Pick-up!

These Final Instructions were created so that you can quickly and easily find information you are looking for. Please take few minutes to review each section, taking special note of the last section on COVID-19 – and important information on how we can work together to prevent its spread.

We look forward to seeing you at Race Packet Pick-up in the Gaslamp!

Warm Regards,
The San Diego Half Race Crew

ps. A link to your personalized Verification Letter will be emailed to you after the event.
