    I misread earlier announcement and now find registration closed. Can I register day of race and if so, for how much? If it’s still an option to pre-register, I could do so by phone. If traveling from out of town morning of race, when should I plan to arrive to park, packet pickup, etc?

      You can still register the morning of the race from 7am-8am. It would be much less congested to park and register if you get there closer to 7. We do have plenty of area inside to stay warm.
