Athlete Check-in and Registration

Packet Pick-up is on Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 11:00am – 5:00 p.m. in downtown Auburn which is T2 and Finish Line. We prefer that you pick up your packet and “goody” bag on Saturday so that you can attend the Mandatory Meeting on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. You will be able to pick up your packet at Rattlesnake Bar State Park on Sunday morning from 5:30 – 6:45 a.m. if you absolutely cannot pick up on Saturday. You will not receive your goody bag and race shirt at Rattlesnake Bar. You will need to pick it up after you finish your race at the information tent. Sunday pickups will not be guaranteed their shirt size. Be prepared to come early as there will be limited staff doing late packet pick up. Be sure to bring your USAT card and photo ID to Packet Pickup for both Saturday and Sunday morning.

If you are a USAT Annual Member, you must bring your card and photo ID. If you do not have your card you can use your smart phone and bring it up electronically.

If you are NOT a USAT Annual Member you will need to purchase a 1-day license of $15.00.
