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 beach area near the dirt parking lot. Drive into Transfer Beach park and keep making your way past the boat launch and past the washrooms. We’ll be set up near the play ground.
- 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.
