Great SWAG!

We'll have our traditional long-sleeved tech shirts and custom finisher's medals again this year.

They're still in the design phase, but we will unveil them as soon as they're finalized.

Note: 2021 Shirts will only be available through Oct. 17. After that, shirt color/style will be randomly distributed. No guarantee of shirt/size after 10/17.

We will likely offer at least one Covid-safe drive-up packet pickup event so that locals can pick their bibs and swag up prior to the event.

Mailing of packets for virtual participants and if necessary, for in-person registrants, will be done much earlier and from GOTR HQ this year so that we can more closely control the timeline.

An email will go out to registrants with pre-race pickup event details.
