After you get your head around the Course Overview, you'll see the real decision is what location you'd like to see your BINs (and what to pack in them).
Revisit the GEAR & LOGISTICS page for the details and specifications of all Mandatory Gear, BINs, BUCKETs, Packrafting, etc.
BINs: To reiterate, Teams will be allowed one bin per person and will decide what bin(s) they’d like available at specific TAs. The bins are going to be “shared” among team members and will be split up between "Location A" and "Location B" - you decide what BINs you'd like at each location. We'll provide you with Labels.
BUCKETS: These are ALL going to the same place; just decide what you'd like to put in them.
START WITH: You'll see from the Course Overview that your Packraft Gear, Paddles, PFDs, and Ropes Gear (and of course your mandatory gear) is needed for the first LEG. Your Ropes Gear will be collected from you at the bottom of the rappel.
BIKES: These are being transported in a box-truck along with your bike shoes (not your helmet, it will be elsewhere). We’re allowing anything SECURELY attached to your bike to be transported: 1) don’t get crazy with it, 2) don't make us regret this decision. Imagine you're tasked with moving a bunch of bikes in a U-Haul; attach your shoes, bottles, food, etc. accordingly.
PADDLE BAG: Your COMPLETELY empty Paddle Bag will be staged and used by our Staff to move your paddle gear. You will not be carrying this Bag during the race.
CENTER SEAT: The canoes do NOT have a center seat. If you're bringing one to use, we'll stage it. You will not be carrying your Center Seat during the race.
END OF RACE: All your Gear will be returned to the Park Conference Center shortly after the FINISH.
CONFUSED: Don't sweat it. We'll have a handy PreRace Checklist for you to follow, and you'll have several hours prior to the 5PM Staging Deadline to make any changes.
