Don’t want to hang on to your personal items? The Mini offers FREE Gear Check for all participants and is located in the Festival Room in the lower level of the Theater Wing of the Memorial Union. Gear Check will be available from 5:30 am – 11:30 am and any unclaimed items will be brought back to the Mini-Marathon offices.
To alleviate congestion, the start line will have corrals! Line up next to the corral that corresponds to the letter on your race bib. The corrals are assigned based on estimated finish time. If you would like to participate with a friend or family member, you may move back a corral, but may not move up. All corrals will have an equal number of participants.
