  3. Next, line up in the t-shirt line for the size that is listed on your bib. You will present your bib to the volunteer and they will give you your shirt.

What is in Your Packet

  • Your Bib & Timing Chip

    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. Make sure your bib is not covered by any clothing or race belt on race day. Covering your bib can cause you to have inaccurate or no timed results.

  • Gear Bag

    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.

  • T-shirt

    You will be given the shirt size that you request upon registration. All t-shirt size exchanges will not be allowed until after the event.

  • Safety Pins

    You can use safety pins or a race belt to attach your bib number. Make sure that your bib number is visible on the front so that you can get your photos after the event.

  • Swag
