THEN YOU WILL PICK UP YOUR MATCHING COMPUTER TAGS FROM THE BIG KAHUNA TENT NEAR THE FINISH LINE. There is a number for every runner you have entered. THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY ADDITIONS.

If your team has not paid, please do not ask to pay later. If your team does not have its money, you may not race.

If you need more pins for bib numbers, please come back to check-in.

IF ATHLETES DO NOT FINISH A RACE, IT IS THE COACHS RESPONSIBILITY TO COLLECT THEIR TAG OR HAVE THE ATHLETE COME OVER TO HAVE US CUT THEIR TAG OFF. IF TAGS ARE NOT TURNED IN, YOU WILL BE CHARGED.

Bibs and Shoe Tags:

ATHLETES MUST WEAR NUMBER BIBS AND SHOE TAG!!!

Athletes need to put 2 pins in the top of their numbers on the FRONT of their uniforms.

Make sure the tag is secure. Athletes do not always tie them in very well.

If an athlete loses their shoe tag while racing, the clip crew taking the shoe tag off will pull off the perforated bib tag at the bottom of their bib number. THE ATHLETE NEEDS TO INFORM THEIR COACH IMMEDIATELY THAT THEY LOST THEIR TAG SO THE COACH CAN MAKE SURE THEY ARE INCLUDED IN THE RESULTS.

Tents: Tents may be placed along the hill in the front of the football stadium or in the areas beside the football

bleachers. YOU MAY NOT PUT UP TENTS INSIDE THE FENCE AROUND THE TRACK.

Declaring You do not have to tell us which athletes are running which race. Just line time up and turn them loose.
