Packet Pickup Reminder

G’day Team! This is a long one, so I have broken it down for you.

Packets – Packet pickup is tomorrow at your designated locations. If you have not replied to me, your packet will be at Carpenter Park Recreation Center. Some people paid for their packets to come in the mail. For paid mailers, what you will be picking up tomorrow will not include the items from the Komen Foundation. Please let me know if you are missing anything.

Carpooling – We will meet at Carpenter Park Recreation Center between 6:30 – 6:45 AM on race day. Please park behind the building in the west parking lot by the baseball fields. We will carpool/caravan to the Legacy Parking Lot on the EDS Campus. The line of traffic is always long! Legacy Drive will close at 7:30 AM. In your packets is a map of the course and parking. If we get separated or you can meet us for any reason, we will reconvene at the team photo area. It is highlighted on your map. We will meet there at 7:30 AM to get the picture taken. After that, you are on your own to run, walk, or stroll the race course!

Last Raffle – When we meet for carpooling and again at the team photo site, I will have slips of paper for you to write your name on. After we take the photo, we will draw a name and I will award the $25 Sports Authority gift card to that person. (Sorry, you can only win once!)

Fundraising – If you are fundraising, please make sure you have everything completed and mailed in by race day. It will take me a few days after that to determine who has raised the most. At the race, look for the Friends For the Cure table and claim your prizes from the Komen Foundation.

Chip Timing – If you paid for the time chip, don’t forget to pick up the actual chip before the race! Also, there will be a special section for you to start the race that you may enter at 7:45 AM.

I Know Someone Who Still Wants On The Team – Tell them to sign up! Here’s the link again: They can register online or at the race. The catch is, I will not be able to provide them with a team t-shirt or race packet. They will be able to pick it up themselves.

What To Wear – On race day, please wear your team t-shirt. Pin your race bib on the front of your shirt. Tributes to your loved ones are encouraged. Don’t forget sunscreen!

Please email me with any questions. See you then. Thanks for everything!
