Timing will be electronic, so if you have a SPORTident finger stick, please bring it! If you don’t have one (most people don’t,) one will be provided for you in exchange for some collateral to make sure it doesn’t accidentally go home with you. Car keys is the customary collateral. Lost finger sticks will be charged to the runner at $40 so please take good care of them.
If you have a GPS watch or a smart phone with a Strava-type tracking app, please bring it so we can add your route to the RouteGadget afterwards!
If you have any questions, please call Chris Gkikas at 828-424-1740
