Ready, Set, GO!!!

Here we are folks, a few days before the race. We're very excited for this year's Classic Race. We have a lot of people registered and a great day set up.

A few quick items we've been getting a lot of calls about.

You can pick up your race packet the day before the race, or the morning of the race. Most of you will want to come and get your packets the day before the race, to avoid all that race morning craziness of last minute registrations, etc. For you we will be at the Layton Hills Mall on Friday from 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. We'll be sitting at center court at the mall by where the escalators and the elevator are. Everyone else can come the morning of the race and look for the preregistered lines to get your packets. We are starting registration at 7:00 a.m. and will be closing registration at 7:45 a.m. Registration will be near the finish line, just to the north and west of the Ed Kenley Amphitheater (that's also where the ever so coveted restrooms are).

This year, with our new timing system, we are able to start all the races at the same time. We will be starting all the races promptly at 8:00 a.m. All the races start in the parking lot in the middle of the Layton City Offices, the Layton City Police Offices and Layton Surf 'N Swim.

As always, we welcome your questions. We appreciate all of the help we have received thus far this year. Please keep your eyes, ears and noses open to anything we can do to improve our race this year. We'll have some contact information for you in your race bag for you to tell your stories and make your suggestions - feel free to also post to our blog!

Cant' wait either, this will be my 6th 5k race this summer and looking forward to this big race! Last week I was out of town and so bummed on how many running events there were and missed them all! But Now I am back and extremely excited to get back to running! This events are so addicting , once you start doing them your craving another race and are just waiting for somebody to put one on! So keep them coming and I will keep coming to them! I love running season!

Just wanted to say the race was awesome. Thanks for all the hard work. It was a tough course!

I was just wondering- I had signed up for a small shirt and got a medium. It just drowns me and there's no way I could wear it. Just wondering if there is any way I could get a small. They are such sweet shirts and I would be bummed if I couldn't wear it. Thanks again. It was all awesome!

We may have a few more small shirts. I'm not sure on that one. Best idea is to come into The McKay-Dee Foundation office at McKay-Dee Hospital on Monday or Tuesday. We'll have all the unclaimed bags and extra shirts there. Their office is on the main floor, just south of the main entrance - across from the radiology department.

Thanks again for your support!
