You can still pickup your packet on race day at the starting area if you can’t make it on Friday,but get there as early as possible (by 5AM).
Refunds and Bib Exchanges: It’s just not practical to process refunds or bib exchanges. If you decide to withdraw from the race please email Barry &Daryl and your entry fee will be donated to the State and County parks instead of buying more stuff for the aid stations.
Pacers: Sorry,no pacers. Our permits with the various park services have a strict limit on the number of runners so we can’t allow pacers.
