Runners may have drop bags (clearly marked with runner's name, bib #, and applicable aid station) for personal needs at the designated drop bag aid stations (eg, Sunrise 1/2, Pioneer Mail 1/2, Red Tail Roost, Penny Pines 2, and Chambers 2). Drop bags are restricted in size to the equivalent of of a large shoe box (strictly enforced). All bags need to be durable and water proof. Your drop bags must be placed in the applicable aid station containers at the start area (Lake Cuyamaca) no later than 5:15 am race morning.
For those aid stations that are transited twice (Pioneer Mail 1&2 and Sunrise 1&2), use only one drop bag for both passes. There are no drop bags for Penny Pines 1 but they're allowed at Penny Pines 2. Penny Pines 1 and Penny Pines 2 are at separate locations on either side of Sunrise Hwy. Drop bags will be returned to Lake Cuyamaca after the applicable aid station closes. Unclaimed drop bags will not be mailed back to entrants, so PLEASE pick up your drop bags prior to leaving the venue. Unclaimed drop bag clothing and gear will be donated to charity.
If you decide to withdraw, or finish the race prior to the drop bags being returned to Lake Cuyamaca, you can or your crew can drive to the applicable aid station if it is still open and claim the bag that way.
