Packet Pick-up

Race bibs, Mercer County Turkey Trot t-shirts and information and items from our sponsors can be picked up Sunday, November 24 or Tuesday, November 26 (and yes, you can pick up the packet of a friend or relative!!). Both Pickups will occur at McCaffrey's in West Windsor in the Bistro area upstairs. On Sunday, we will be there from 9:30am-3pm, and on Tuesday, we will be there from 5-8pm. Thank you to McCaffrey's for their sponsorship and support! The store is located at 335 Princeton Hightstown Rd, West Windsor Township, NJ 08550.

Packet pickup on Race Day (for those of you who are unable to make it prior to Race Day) will begin at 7 am in the pavilion at the West Picnic Area in Mercer County Park. PLEASE try and pickup your packet on November 24th or November 26th to minimize the crunch before the race.

Parking

Please park at Fields 3 and 9 (across the street from the West Picnic Area drive) or the Marina (next to the West Picnic Area to the east). We strongly suggest that those who are fast runners park at the Fields 3 and 9 lot as it will be easier to get out if you need to leave before the other runners finish their race.
