Important Race Info Q&A

It is almost here!  We wanted to pass along some information that we get asked about a lot... Packet Pick-up Packet pick-up starts Friday at noon.  Your best bet is to let the first rush get through and come between 1:00 and 8:00 (please don't come early, we won't be ready).  This year we have moved packet pick-up to Page Memorial Fellowship Hall which is right at the starting line on 104 Sout...
