  1. I'm driving up from the Chicago area morning of the race, How do I get approve for "day of" check in, I have pre-reg'd on line. thanks Andy Oleson
    Ultra bike class.

  2. I'm driving also from about an hour away, wondering how this works when I get to the check-in and bus but finish somewhere else? Are there transport options back to the "host" hotel? Runner/Marathon or Ultra class.

  3. How about I simply "ditto" the previous 2 comments. Arriving the morning of & wondering about transportation from the finish to our vehicles. Really looking forward to Sunday!!!
    Tootles, Jenny Reed Murrell
