GEAR CHECK:

We will have an athlete only gear check corral in which athletes will drop their bag at a pre-labeled area based on their bib number. Volunteers will staff the entry and exit of the gear check area to make sure bags match the bib number of each runner entering and exiting. Bib numbers will be required to enter and exit the gear check corral. For safety purposes volunteers may ask to look inside of gear bags.

PICTURES: 

You all have the best cameras in the palm of your hand. While race pictures of yesteryear were so cool, it's hard to justify the expense to our amazing photography professionals with the hope of you purchasing a race picture. Simply, it's just not worth it for us to bring folks out there. So you're on your own!!! We will have a live stream at the finish!!!
