  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

  4. There will be three of us traveling from Waterloo area Sunday before race! Greg, Gene and Jerry for 1/2 Marathon. Wanting to get approved for race day packet pickup?

  5. For early registration simply email Lance.Andre at Hotmail.com to let him know that you'll be using the race day packet pickup option.

  6. Just to verify - it's out and back course for 1/2 marathon?
