In 2019, the Saturday OVC 5K bib will be the same bib number as the Sunday Half Marathon bib, but there will be two separate bibs. Entrants can pick up both bibs at the Expo on Friday, November 8, from 12 noon to 6 PM.

Those picking up for the OVC 5K on race day will receive their 5K bib only. They will need to go to the Expo between 9:30 AM and 6 PM to pick up their Half Marathon bib and shirt.
