Race-day packet pickup is also available from 7-7:30 a.m. March 17. However, it is strongly discouraged for participants without a DOD ID Card, as West Point Security has very limited ability to process visitor passes prior to 9 a.m. 

** Per USMA Security Office, all participants and race spectators who are not DOD ID cardholders must obtain a visitor’s pass. The West Point Visitors Control Center is located at 2107 New South Post Road, West Point, N.Y. 10996, and operating hours are 6 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.
