Helpful Race-Day Information
SHIRTS AND BIBS
Shirts and race bibs may be picked up at the Carbon Valley Recreation Center, 701 5th St., Frederick, Saturday, June 30 – Tuesday, July 3 at 4 pm. They will be available at check-in on race day starting at 6:30 am. There is no need to check in on race day if you pick up your shirt and bib in advance.
It is extremely important not to trade bibs with anyone because your name will be entered into the timing system under the bib number you were assigned. If you win the race with someone else’s bib number they’ll get the medal.
Parking at the library is limited so please carpool if possible. The Town of Firestone does not allow parking on Sable Blvd. or Park Ave. Street parking is available in the St. Vrain Ranch Subdivision if the library parking lot is full.
