There will be tons of toilets along the course as well as the start/finish line

Gear Check:

There will be a gear check available at the race. All Gear Check bags must be 12" by 18" or smaller. Your race bib will have a tab at the top. Tear this off, as it's also your claim tab for Gear Check. Please attach it to your Gear Check bag, then hand the bag over at the Gear Check tent. Small zip ties work best for securing Gear Check bags, so look for one in your goodie bag.

Kit List

You will receive unique North Shore Classic merchandise and clothing in your goody bag. The race takes place on roads, so please wear suitable trainers, and don't wear anything inappropriate. Please keep your bib number visible on the front of your body so that you can be identified by marshals, medics, and photographers.
