Gear Check

Because carrying your stuff around is no fun.

If you have gear to check, please leave your bag with us at Gear Check. Lonely bags will be immediately removed from the premises and discarded. RAM Racing is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.

Gear Check will be available to all registrants at the race. All Gear Check bags must be 12" by 18" or smaller, please! Your race bib will have a tab at the top. Tear this off, as it's also your claim tab for Gear Check. Please attach it to your Gear Check bag, then hand the bag over at the Gear Check tent. Small zip ties work best for securing Gear Check bags, so look for one in your goodie bag.



On race day, participants look to uniformed runners whose job is to keep a steady pace throughout the entire course. Pacers are race-day pros and sought after for reliable information. We will offer pacers for both the Marathon and Half Marathon distances, through Beast Pacing.

Post Race Party

The finish line festivities will be held at Esther Short Park.

There will be food, music and vendors, as you relax and celebrate your race.
