Race Day Information:

The race begins at 7:30am. Please allow yourself enough time to park and get to the starting area in Downtown Bentonville. There are several free public parking lots throughout the downtown area.

Your race packet contains your shirt, but it also contains a couple of important articles for your race participation...your race bib with your race number that's been assigned to you and corresponding shoe chip. Your race number should be affixed to the front of your outermost layer with the safety pins provided. Please be sure your bib is visible when you race! Your shoe tag MUST be attached to your shoe laces with the provided wire ties for the most accurate timing information. DO NOT CARRY THE CHIP IN YOUR HAND OR YOUR POCKET.

Step 1: Thread the wire twist ties under the shoe laces.

Step 2: Thread the shoe tag onto the wire twist ties.

Step 3: Secure the shoe tag by twisting the wire twist ties firmly together.

Be sure to turn in your shoe tag in the finish line area following your race! The shoe tags are reusable and expensive to replace!
