Why we ask participants to register early: It helps us to plan better for the race. We can better plan for how much post-race food is needed. We have a far better idea of how many shirts to order and in the correct sizes. We can order enought bibs and safty pins. We can better estimate the about of fluids out on the course, and the number of cups to have. All these things are important to us, because they are inportant thing to the runners. Please help us by signing up early, pickup your race packet and avoid the long lines race morning.
