It's actually two days before the race but things are building to a point here, so a few last minute items: Online registration is closed as of today at noon. In person registration is ongoing at The Running Hub today and tomorrow, as well as race day registration on the Plaza from 700-745am. Packet pickup will be operating tomorrow from noon to 530pm at The Running Hub. Come by and save yourself a bit of time and hassle on Saturday morning. Chat it up with a few of our volunteers, and check out the season's new shoes and running gear.
The Kids K is scheduled for 930am-ish, two whole laps around the Plaza. There is no cost but registration forms (waivers) need to be filled out before race time for each runner.
What else? Striders logo shirts, visors, and caps will be available for Club members that haven't yet received them. For those who want an extra because of their awesomeness, or for thoughtful gifts, or for non-members who need the newest and latest gear, arrangements can be made to purchase them. I'm not certain whether we'll be set up to sell them on the spot but stop by the table and inquire within.
Remember that parking meters begin ticking at 8am. Bring enough coins to load a couple of hours on that thing ($2). There's also the city parking garages two blocks west on San Francisco St, a block south on Water St, two blocks north at the Santa Fe Convention Center, or two blocks east at Alameda and St. Francis Cathedral.
The weather looks to be perfect on Saturday morning. The field looks to be well above our average turn-out; We've got a count of about 100 Girls on the Run participants according to Alice and Marissa; We've got eleven plus Running 101 graduates set to line up; We look forward to seeing you all out there and best of luck to all who toe the starting line!
