New Pre-Registration Check-In System for 2013
November 23, 2013
Did you get stuck in our long pre-registration line last year? Well, we have great news — this year there will be 8 pre-registration check-in lines, organized by last name!
When you arrive at the Civic Center on Thursday morning, simply look for the door indicating your last name and head straight in to the table for check-in. It's that easy! After check-in, grab some coffee at our refreshments station and stay toasty in the space at the far ends of the lobby, or warm up with a walk around the upper level of the Civic Center.
Each year, we look for ways to improve our race, and hope that this change will better your experience and make it easier for all of our great volunteers. Have a suggestion to help us improve? Feel free to Contact Us with your ideas and we will look into them for next year.
