Race Day Requests

  • Eat light & eat for fuel
  • Stay hydrated - even if it’s cold out
  • Be on time for warm-ups, stretches, marshaling (they will drop us from races!)
  • Enjoy the Village between races - it's a fun weekend!
  • If you wander off, let folks know where you're headed. Playing hide-and-go-seek during Marshalling is NOT fun
  • When marshalling, make sure everyone wears a PFD!


Other

  • As always - be sure to thank the race organizers & volunteers. Loads of effort go into organizing these events, even small ones.
  • This is a fund raiser and awareness event. There will be opportunities for support throughout the Village.
  • Remember that you reppin' the entire team when your up there.
  • Above all else, have a good (& safe) time!
