What to bring

This is a BYOC (bring your own container) event. Please bring your own water bottle. It can be refilled at the beginning of the event and at water stations along the routes. Remind anyone attending with you to bring their own bottle too.
We love your pets, but for everyone’s safety, please keep them at home.
SPF is your BFF. Don’t forget your sunscreen.
We don’t want you to miss a thing so please allow yourself enough time to register and get your shirt and lunch wristband to be ready for your warm-up time.

Follow all rules of the road.
