PACKAGE PICK UP
As we tend to get a large number of participants registered and to ease the congestion with parking, we stagger the bib pick up times. Package pick up will take place on the grassy area where you first drive into Royal Roads University. There is an old track that has turned into a parking lot, where you can park.
- Long Course participants can pick up their bibs starting at 9:00am until 10:00am.
- Short Course participants can pick up their bibs starting at 9:45am until 10:30am.
