Registration website:

T-shirts are available for sale on the registration site for non-participants. Select the “Not and Event Participant” option, select the type(s) and size(s) of shirt(s) and add shipping if desired. If you don’t have the shirt(s) shipped, they may be picked up at packet pickup or the morning of the race at Mary’s Park. There will be a small processing fee for the order. We will also sell shirts at packet pickup on the 1st of Oct, and at the race on the 2nd of October, but can’t guarantee availability.
