Any gear to be checked must be contained within the gear check bag given to each participant at packet pickup. Any other bags will not be accepted.

Bag check personnel may refuse to accept any bag at their discretion.

Place the sticker given to you at packet pickup (number matches your bib number) on the outside of your bag in a visible location.

Start Waves (Corrals)

Start corrals will be assigned based on the estimated finish time given during registration. Take care to estimate your finish time accurately as you will be required to start with the wave/corral assigned on your race bib. Waves will be assigned as a letter of the alphabet with “A” representing the fastest pace. Failure to start with the correct wave is grounds for disqualification. The appropriate pace groups will start in their respective corral.

If your expected pace has changed from that given during registration you may send an email to racedirector@sciotoriverrun.com indicating the new estimated finish time you would like used to calculate your start wave. Please include your name and date of birth for identification purposes. After September 1st, corral/wave changes will no longer be accepted.
