  • Corporate Cup participants should check with their team captain for special instructions relating to this division.
  • Volunteers can bring what they need to their work stations, but volunteers must be wearing their volunteer race crew shirts and/or have appropriate credentials.
  • Spectators are also asked not to bring backpacks or coolers to the course.
  • No bags may be left unattended at any time.
