Packet Pickup

Saturday, May 21, 2016
Presidio Sports Basement, Back Country Area
11 am – 3 pm

To ease the burden on our volunteers on race morning, runners are encouraged to pick up their bibs and shirts on Saturday. Please make sure to carpool, rideshare, or ride your bike as there will be limited parking at Sports Basement. Please park in the back lot or the East Beach parking lot.

If you do not attend packet pickup on Saturday, please allow extra time on race morning to pick up your bib before the race starts promptly at 9 am. Runners will receive their finisher medals after crossing the finish line. Please note that due to the logistic of this special event, there will be no race day registration.

Post-Race Celebration

All attendees are also encouraged to wear their favorite DSE (or Double Dipsea) T-shirt, sweatshirt, hat, shorts, etc. We want to see a whole lot of yellow out there on race day!

We encourage members to bring along any DSE memorabilia that you might have saved over the years to share with everyone – i.e. photos, trophies, etc. We will have a collection of old DSE newsletters for you to look over, photos, etc.

In addition to our regular post-race refreshments of fresh fruit, chips/pretzels, and cookies, members are encouraged bring along their favorite snacks–cookies, brownies, muffins, etc–to share with others. Homemade, store bought, we aren’t fussy so long as it’s yummy! What will be the most sought-after treat – Fred Haber’s famous chocolate chip cookies, or Janet Nissenson’s legendary coffee cake?

Volunteers

As always, we can’t put on these events without lots of volunteers, and this one is no exception. We need volunteers to assist at the following: Stuffing packets on Friday at Sports Basement, Saturday packet pick-up at Sports Basement, race day packet pick-up, traffic/parking control, course monitors, finish line timing/stringing, handing out finisher medals, refreshments, selling logo apparel, manning the memorabilia table. If you can help with any of these jobs, please contact dse@kitzzy.com, or jlnissenson@aol.com.
