What is in Your Packet

    This bib number is unique to you and includes your timing chip. Do not allow another person to race with your bib – it can get you and them banned from running events. Please see our transfer and deferral policy if you cannot use your bib.

    This is the only bag that will be accepted into gear check. Please don’t leave anything valuable in your bag as we cannot take responsibility for any lost items.
