Monterey Bay Half Marathon Expo

Participants in the Monterey Bay Half Marathon should plan to pick-up their race bib, shirt, and packet at the race expo either Friday or Saturday, November 10-11. The Expo is open from 12 noon to 6 p.m. on Friday, November 10 and from 9:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 11.

Participants in the Saturday 5K and 3K can pick up their race bib and event shirt on Friday at the Expo or early Saturday morning at the race site, Lovers Point in Pacific Grove.

Be sure to bring photo ID (required for bib pick-up).

We will have computers on site for bib look-up and the timing company will be sending bib information during the week prior to the Expo. You may also look up your bib number (once assigned) on your  page at haku.

You must pick up your bib and packet in person; no one else can pick up for you unless a Packet Pick-Up Authorization Form  has been filled out.

2022 Expo Activities:
