Important Race Information
Timing System: At Packet Pick Up, you will receive a Chronotrack B-tag timing device that will already be attached to the back of your bib number. Please do not remove this device as it will allow your exact finishing time to be calculated. To ensure accurate timing, make sure that your bib number is visible on your outermost layer of clothing. Do not crumple or fold your bib or timing device. Results will be available immediately following the race at the kiosks under the Pavilion at the After-Party Expo and online.
Parking: Check the Travel page for specific details about parking for ZOOMA Texas. Note that there is not space at the Hyatt for participant parking, and special off-site parking arrangements have been made for participants and spectators. Be green and carpool!
Gear Check: Gear check will be available for all participants. Remove the gear check tag from your bib number and attach it to your bag with a safety pin. Leave your gear at the Gear Check tent next to the Runner Info tent. All checked bags will be transported to the Riversong Lawn behind the Muscle Milk Light Recovery Area, which participants will pass on their way from the finish line to the After-Party Expo. Please retrieve your belongings promptly after finishing the race and do not leave any valuables in Gear Check. While we will do our best to return your gear to you as you left it with us, we cannot guarantee the safety of gear-checked items.
