If you did not order a shirt but would like one, we recommend coming to packet pick up on race day between 6:30 am - 7:45 am at the Mill Race Trail Head. We order just a few shirts extra in each size and they'll be available for purchase starting at 6:30 am. Extra shirts typically sell out quickly. After the pre-order shirt deadline, we are not able to reserve shirts - it is first come, first buy on race day. Extra shirts will not be ordered after the event.
