However, you may transfer your bib to another runner. Bib transfers will need to be done at packet pickup on Thursday and Friday ONLY. Just bring a copy of the original registered runner’s driver license and we will take care of the rest. You may also change from one race distance to another on these two days.
Runners will receive a high quality poly blend race shirt. All shirts are unisex so please select your shirt size accordingly.
