If you need to change anything about your race entry, please go to the Help Desk at Packet Pick-up. At Packet Pick-up, you will be issued the size of shirt you registered for. If you'd like a different size, there will be a shirt exchange at Gear Check on SATURDAY.
Gear Check is available for participants wanting to bring personal belongings with them to the race, but do not want to run or walk with them. Belongings should be brought in a clear bag to the TinCaps batting cages inside Parkview Field. The participant bib (received at Packet Pick-Up) will include a Gear Check tear-off that should be attached to the bag turned in to the Gear Check service.
