There is always a lot going on at the CUCB Expo, beyond packet pickup: expert clinics, packet pickup “happy hour,” and tons of great booths from the running community. We’ve got the rundown (haha) below to make sure you make sure you make the most of your packet pickup.
Clinic and Happy Hour Schedule
Friday, April 1
3 – 5 PM: Meet Meb Keflezighi at his first Washington, DC major race appearance. After his clinic, you can stop by the Cabot Running Lounge for an autograph session.
5 PM: Packet Pickup Happy Hour, sponsored by The 201 Bar! Happy Hour will feature beer and Cabot cheese from 5:00 P.M. until the beer runs out. Tickets good for one beer will be distributed to registered participants 21-years-of-age or older starting at 4:30 P.M. on Friday while supplies last. Additional beer tickets available for purchase.
Saturday, April 2
11 AM – 1 PM: Meet Meb Keflezighi at his first Washington, DC major race appearance. After his clinic, you can stop by the Cabot Running Lounge for an autograph session.
3 PM – 4 PM: Meet Joan Benoit Samuelson, gold medalist in the first-ever Olympic Women’s Marathon in Los Angeles in 1984, Boston Marathon winner in 1979 and 1983, and winner of the 1985 Chicago Marathon women’s title in 1985, where she set an American record for the distance with a time of 2:21:21. She’s running her 4th CUCB and will stick around for autographs at the Credit Union booth from 4 PM – 5 PM.
Last year we collected 200 pairs of used running shoes at the Expo, and are proud to host used shoe collection again this year. Give your old running shoes new life thanks to the MORE Foundation!
There isn’t a whole lot of car parking near the Building Museum, but there will be a whole lot of bike parking thanks to Two Wheel Valet! Ride your bike down to pick up your packet to help us uphold our reputation as a Gold Level Council for Responsible Sport event.
