Pre-Race Check in Policies:
All athletes must attend ONE pre-race check-in to pick up their race materials (FRI or SAT). Athletes who do not or can't attend FRI OR SAT (and have not selected the VIP Option - more info below) will be required to pay a $10 late fee on race morning in order to pick up packet materials.
It is mandatory for all athletes to bring their ID to the pre-race check in. We will not give any athlete their bib number without an ID.
You must sign both waivers below to get race materials.
You will also be required to show proof of USAT annual membership or purchase a one day membership (if you haven't already purchased a one day with us through registration).
Friends and family members will NOT be allowed to pick up for an athlete. Sorry NO EXCEPTIONS. These events are USAT sanctioned and USAT doesn't allow anyone besides the participant to pick up race materials.
