Drop Bags

Tarps are laid out to leave at race start line on race morning, or Friday packet pickup. Have them marked with your name, bib number, and aid station they are going to. Keep bags a reasonable size and weight. The size of a small gym bag, 12 x 12 x 36 inches. 15 pounds or lighter.

We suggest having your drop bags in a rain resistant package.

Emma Carlin: Mile 15.7 and mile 47.4

Scuppernong: Mile 31.6

Nordic: Mile 0, 63.1 and 100.6

Hwy 12: Mile 77.4 and 86.3

At each aid station we will have a “return” tarp. When you will no longer need your drop bag put it on the return pile and we will get it back to the start line on our next trip.
