Entrance to the CES Race Day Resort (RDR) is restricted to registered athletes & guests. You MUST have the CES Race Day Resort sticker or wristband to enter.  NO EXCEPTIONS.

You will need to pickup a sticker for your race bib (athletes) or a wristband (guests that are NOT running) as visual entry to the CES Race Day Resort (RDR). Please stop by at one of the following RDR Ticket Pickup options to receive your RDR sticker and/or bracelets in advance, so you can avoid waiting in line to check in on Race Day. To speed up the process, please bring a copy of your confirmation email when you pickup your credentials (especially if you’re registering the day before the packet pickup!).
