Race Update 1

Race Update 2



Friday, April 12. Capitola Mall, 4:00PM -7:00 PM

We strongly recommend (for reals) to take advantage of this opportunity and get this fun errand out of the way. It will make race day super chill when you show up ready to rock and roll wearing your bib number and super cool good-luck race shirt*. On Sat. morning you will feel like a champion with zero worries after you park. Why? 'cause you will have everything you need!! On Friday you will collect a goodie bag with a bib number, safety pins, and race shirt. 

Why else is a good idea to pick up my bib on Friday?
- You get first dibs on some cool apparel :)
- You get to meet our race announcer (ahem, ahem, Mrs. Heidi Boynton) AND if you share with her any cool stories she will give you a shout out on race day. 
- You can grab dinner at the mall and that will make yours and your families lives easier for Saturday's early morning festivities.
-Target therapy.

Ok, ok, but what if I can't pick up my bib on Friday?
No worries, we got you.


Saturday, April 13th (Race Day) 8:15-9:45 AM Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds
Pleeeeeeease, give yourself plenty of extra time to park. Find the Registration booth at the Expo. You will collect a goodie bag with a bib number, safety pins, and race shirt. 

**Mini Mermaid and Young Triton participants will collect their package at the RACE on Saturday morning. See their COACH for detailed instructions.

The Fairgrounds has lots of free parking, AND...come early (see above!)!  Leave yourself time to get your spot, collect your gear, find your peeps and be ready to have a great morning.  How early is early?  We will be selling coffee at 8:00am, you know, just in case you need a cup.
