Hello Felix 24 Participants!

I'm very excited to see you all on Sunday!  Just a few last minute details:
A map of where to park and where to register: http://goo.gl/maps/LODll
If you've already registered, all you need to do is show up and check in.
If you've yet to register, and you'd like to do so at the event, credit and cash is accepted, no checks.  You'll need to fill out a form and sign a waiver.
The race begins at about 11 a.m., so be ready.
BE COURTEOUS TO OTHER PARK USERS. We have to be respectful of them, as this is not a course closed for pedestrians.
That being said, get excited! This thing is going to be awesome!
Don't hesitate to contact me with any other questions at all.
