With only 4 weeks to go, I will have plenty of email reminders coming your way. I appreciate your time and patience to read each!
Today's email is to talk about drop bags. Our aid stations have changed a bit this year, so check the links below for the most up-to-date information.

ALL DROP BAGS MUST BE IN PLACE AT SILVER HILL BY 6PM ON FRIDAY, JULY 17TH. Unfortunately we can not accommodate people postponed (even by emergencies or travel delays). If you arrive late, you will have to do without your drop bags.
DROP BAGS 101
Drop bags should be soft sided, waterproof and durable.
Keep it simple. The more stuff you cram into your drop bag, the more valuable time you’ll lose rummaging through the unnecessary clutter to find what you really need.
MARK EACH DROP BAG WITH - LAST NAME, BIB #, AND AID STATION NAME. Aid station volunteers will organize the drop bags by bib # for easy organization and retrieval at aid stations. If you don't write your bib # or they can't read it, it'll likely get put in the 'unknown pile' and will be harder to find during the race.
As always, feel free to e-mail with questions! Happy training to all!
