We won't be making any exceptions to this rule, so if you don't bring your own drinking receptacle come race-weekend, you'll want to pre-purchase a collapsible cup and if you don't already have a reusable soft flask to carry with you on the course (for soda & electrolyte drink, etc.), we will have the collapsible cups for purchase when you check in for the race and/or at packet pickup for $5 (quantities limited at check-in).
Please help us keep our races eco-friendly, minimize the trash in the landfills and our trails clean.

FINISH-LINE BRACELETS (for non-runners & non-volunteers): Anyone eating or drinking needs to have a finish-line bracelet on the day they're otherwise running/volunteering. We will have finish-line bracelets for sale at the merch table on race-day ($5 - CASH ONLY) if you didn't already pre-purchase them via UltraSignup for $5. If you aren't a registered runner or volunteer, pre-purchasing a bracelet online helps us better plan when we're purchasing items for the finish-line breakfast. It helps cover our extra food and drink costs for spectators, and in turn helps us keep race costs down.
It also helps ensure that we have food and drinks available for the last finishers and last volunteers back to the finish line.
