We use timing chips on disposable self-adhesive ankle bands, body marking or temporary race number tattoos, helmet numbers, bike frame numbers, wrist bands, and bib numbers to ensure we keep track of you during the race and provide you accurate results.

Wear the ankle band on your left ankle and attach your bike frame number to your bike before checking into the bike transition area.

Β· Photo ID Required.
Β· All racers, including relay team members, must pick up their own race packet.
Β· All racers will receive an envelope with a helmet number, bike frame number, bib number, and wrist band to be detached from the bib number and worn at all times.

Β· Be sure you still have your body marking or race bib number and the provided wrist band to retrieve your equipment from the race transition area.
Β· This area is controlled for your safety so we can insure only racers enter the area and take only their equipment.
Β· Racers will be allowed to retrieve their bikes after the last biker returns from the bike course or as soon as race staff feels like they can safely escort racers to their bike rack location without interfering with another participants race.
