Registered athletes can pick up your race packet TODAY (Sat 9/30) at Roadrunner Sports in Berkeley between 2-5pm. Race day packet pickup will be available, but picking it up on Sat will ease congestion on Sunday and is strongly recommended.
Online registration is closed but walk-in registration is still available at packet pickup and on race day while space is available (~40 open slots). Cash or checks only please.
Bracelets: Two bracelets are included in your race packet marked with your participant number and your heat number. Put one bracelet on your right wrist and the other one on the top tube of your bike. Your wrist band is your ticket to get a timing chip on race day, so be sure to put in on before arriving at the venue.
Heat assignments: Review the heat assignments today so you know when you will be starting your swim. Arrive at the outdoor pool 5-10 minutes before your heat starts. Enter the pool via the MAIN ENTRANCE, not via the side gate near the basketball courts (to avoid the timing mats). You can warm up in a free lane before your heat starts or in the indoor pool. There are no lane assignments – first come, first served.
Timing chips: You will receive your timing chip at check-in on race day. It will have a number corresponding to your participant number marked on your wrist band. There will be volunteers at check it to put it around your left ankle. The chip is not yours to keep! After you cross the finish line, a volunteer will remove it from your ankle. Don’t leave the course with it or we’ll be charged for it.
Waivers: At packet pick (or race day), you will be asked to sign a waiver. You must do this in order to receive your timing chip. Race team captains can sign as guardians for their minor team members if they have obtained permission from the parents of those minors. There will be a waiver signing table at the venue which you should visit before going to get your chip.
T-shirts: You will receive your t-shirt at packet pickup or on race day at a separate booth located near the finish area, not at the registration table.
Weather: Will be sunny and warm, so be prepared. Water and sport drink will be available, but it’s a good idea to load your bike with a full water bottle so you can drink on the bike course and start the run in good shape. Stay hydrated today and during the event. A visor is advised on the run and a wide-brimmed hat for après race. Air temp on Sat at 10am was 68º but it felt more like the low-mid 80ºs in the full sun.
Wishing everyone a great race on Sunday 10/1!
