    Is the medal for the half included in the $55 registration fee? What's the additional medal fee when checking out, just for personalization?

    Packet pick up is an hour before the race.... I am registered for the half, does this mean I can pick up my packet an hour before the half starts? Or do I need to pick it up an hour before the 5K?

      An hour before the half marathon.
