It's going to be another exciting and busy Race Day this year. Make sure you've got all the latest info:
Additional space for team tents
New This Year
: the closure on Crescent Street will be moved to allow teams to drop off supplies closer to the race site. Because there will be less protected space on Crescent Street, we have opened up a new location for team tents on the west side of Little Lake along the waterfront. NOTE: NO TENT PEGS PERMITTED IN THIS AREA due to the underground sprinkler system, but you can use water buckets and sand bags to anchor your tent if you wish. Please
see the full site map on the Festival website
for all team tent areas.
