We are now closed to registrations and changes to the race entries.

We did have to close a bit earlier than we wanted last night. The process turned out to be manual, so we could not last until midnight.

We will have email update tracking and hope to provide information on how to set that up in the coming days.

We have assigned the bib numbers and are sending that data, along with your custom text to the bib printer and to the safety teams. We will be sending an email with your bib number and information about race weekend in the coming days.
