Race Day Registration
We highly recommend packet pickup be completed on one of the designated days. However, we realized it may be impossible for a few people to pickup their packet at the official times. We will have limited packet pickup the morning of the race.
Race day packet pickup and race day registration (credit card accepted) are available starting at 6AM. Race day registration is available as long as there are slots open. However, you will not be given a shirt until after the race if available.
Water stations will be on either side of the bridge (before and after the Causeway), but there will be no water stations on the bridge. Port-A-Johns will be at Start/finish and all aid stations.
