The 2018 Indy Half Marathon at Fort Ben Packet Pick-Up will be your exclusive opportunity to purchase limited gear for the 23rd edition of this historic event. Past items have included a performance long sleeve highlighting the names of pre-registered participants and an array of exclusively branded event merchandise. Featured items will have limited quantities and sizes - get yours before they're gone!

Packet Pick-up will serve as the pick-up location for Race numbers, but is also free and open to the public.

You MUST pick up your packet Friday October 5th, 2018. There will be NO race day packet pick-up.
