Packets cannot be picked up by friends or family members for you - each participant, including each member of a relay, must pick up their own packet.
All participants are required to have a USAT membership for this event. If you are not an annual member, you must purchase a one-day pass for $12 (if pre-registered online, you already paid this if you are not a member).
USAT members must provide proof of membership at packet pick-up or they will be required to purchase a one-day pass or renew their membership. If you have not yet received or have lost your card, you can view USAT's website for info on how to get a new membership card. New members can also purchase membership online prior to the race during registration.

Bikes are to be racked the morning of the event and must be racked at least 15 minutes prior to race start. Racking by BIB NUMBER. You must place your bike on a rack, not leaning against a rack or the fencing. Chips will be distributed the morning of the race in the transition area.
You may enter the park for no charge when picking up your packet; however, if you plan to use the park at all to swim, run or ride, please be courteous and pay the one-day fee. There is no charge for participants or spectators on race day. Swimming before the race can only be done on the east side of the lake below the camping area!
