Arrival and Check-in Procedures

All team captains must go to the Registration tent upon arrival on the morning Race Day.  You will be given wristbands for the team members listed on your roster.  These wristbands must be worn all day.  Please ensure they are affixed to your wrist snugly so they do not come off in the water while you are racing.  No one will be permitted to race without a wristband on.

Tent Placement / Athlete's Village

The Captain is responsible for selecting his/her team's location.  For convenience, you might consider hanging your banner Friday night.  The Athletes' Village will be set-up along the river from the holding / marshaling area to beyond the finish line.

Banners

10' x 3' banner for your tent
3' x 3' Drummer's banner, to be held while passing in front of Athletes' Village after your team crosses the finish line.

Team Shirt Contest
