*Race Day kit pickup is available at the Start / Finish area, between 6:15 am and 7:15 am, but with the earlier start times this year, if you are not from out of town,  we urge you to get yours at BlackToe Running or Afterglow Fitness on the dates/times listed above as it has been hard to distribute kits to a large number of runners and not have the events delayed.

We will have Baggage Check available to all runners.
