Athlete Guide


Runner check-in will take place on Saturday, April 13th from 11am - 4pm at Valley Fleet Feet (13910 E Indiana Ave d, Spokane Valley, WA 99216)

If you are unable to pick-up your packet, a friend may pick it up for you. 

*We understand that last minute issues come up.  For those runners that absolutely must pick-up their packet on race morning, we will offer a very limited race morning packet pick-up starting at 7am. We strongly encourage runners to pick up their packet the day before (Saturday) since we will have very limited staff to help with check-in race morning. If you must pick-up your race packet on race morning, plan ahead and arrive early, we will not be responsible for you missing your start time if you arrive last minute and are still waiting in line.

Virtual runners and Kids Challenge runners who did not pick up their packets, will be mailed the week following the live race (April 14th).

We will have an athlete only gear check corral in which athletes will drop their bag at a pre-labeled area based on their bib number. Volunteers will staff the entry and exit of the gear check area to make sure bags match the bib number of each runner entering and exiting. Bib numbers will be required to enter and exit the gear check corral. For safety purposes volunteers may ask to look inside of gear bags.
