Personal Item Drop

Where to put my personal items during the race?

For the last two years and returning because of its popularity, we have partnered with Barron Peck Bennie & Schlemmer LLP to have a personal item drop off for the race adjacent to the registration tent.  They will have bags for you to put your phones, keys, and other items of value to be stored with them and returned to your post race. We are excited about this partnership and hope that you will be able to utilize and enjoy the run knowing that your personal items are safe with us.
