Bib Pickup

Bib Pickup Dates/Times TBD

(Race starts at 9:00am SHARP. The Start Line is approximately a 5 minute walk from the venue)

Roads begin to close at 7:00am, so come early!

1) Walk-Up Registration (behind section 104)

2) Bib Pickup (behind section 106): This is the first place you need to go. Bibs will be sorted alphabetically by your last name. Your voucher for the Cyclones game is on your bib. If you purchased additional vouchers you will receive them here as well. 

--The only thing you need in order to run the race is your bib. Stations 3-5 will remain open at Heritage Bank Center on Saturday until 10am, so if there is a line you can come back after the race--

3) T-Shirt Pickup (behind section 108): Show the person at the table your bib so that they can verify the t-shirt size you registered for. Everyone will receive a shirt! They will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis. If we run out of the size you registered for we will mail you your shirt after the race. Exchanges are available on a first-come first-serve basis AFTER the race (only if there are extras that were not pre-ordered).

4) Bag Check (behind section 110): Tear off the bag check tab off your bib and give it the person at the bag check table along with your bag (bags will be provided if you don't have one). The tab has your bib number on it, so that is how we will identify your bag when you return. Please use the bag you receive at Bib Pickup!

5) Box Office (behind section 140): Redeem the game voucher (included on your bib) & hand it to the box office to redeem for a ticket to any 2023-24 regular season game. If you ordered additional vouchers please pick them up prior to going to the box-office. If you want to sit together the transaction must happen at the same time.
