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.

  • Under Armour 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.

  • Gear Bag

    Help us be Green! Only take a Gear Bag at packet pick up if you are for sure going to drop a bag in the morning. There will be bags available at eh Gear Bag tent if you change your mind in the morning.

    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.

  • 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.
