Registration will be set by race number so please make sure you queue in the correct section. You will be using our Chip on Bib race numbers and it is important these are displayed on your outer garment to ensure 1) We can see your race number when running 2) To help with the timing system to read your time and 3) To help our photographers identify you!

This is located next to our registration tents. Please note space is extremely limited so travel as lightly as possible. Bag storage is under gazebos which are manned. However, we do not recommend bringing anything of great value to the event.
