Has to be a better way

There is no same-day packet-pickup for the 1/2 marathon I'm doing Sunday. So I have to drive over 50 miles each way to get my stuff tomorrow. It will eat up about 3 hours of my day, and will cost over $10 in gas.

I think every event should have a "Mail My Packet" option. They could do it for $5, but I'd be willing to pay $10. For $10, I'd STILL be saving money. Basically, if you register earlier than 1 month before the event, for an extra fee all your race materials will be mailed to you. The organizers will make a lot more money, and participants will be thrilled not to spend 2 extra hours in their cars.
