What you Need to Know:
What to wear: Wear comfy weather-appropriate running clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting wet or dirty. Team costumes are encouraged and rewarded, so get creative. Don’t be afraid to show your inner Diva.
What to bring: You’ll need your ID, sunscreen, and your favorite apres run clothes. Bring cash to purchase from vendors and our own merchandise tent, or tasty snacks.
Where to park: Follow the signs and the traffic attendants. Parking is free here! Carpooling is always in fashion, so fill your ride.
When to arrive: Arrive 90 minutes before your start wave so you have plenty of time to park, pick up your registration packet and timing chip, check your bag, and warm up.
How to check in: Follow the signs to the packet pick up tent. If you had your bib and t-shirt mailed to you, bypass this stop and go right to the timing chip tent. If you are picking up for a friend, you will need a photocopy of their ID and a permission letter stating that it is OK for you to pick up your packet.
