A few notes:
1) We are using WSBA numbers for the race. Rental numbers will be available for the race at a cost of $10 to Washington residents ($5 of which is refunded upon return of the number). There will be multiple races in Eastern WA this year that will be using WSBA numbers. If you have questions about the WSBA and the numbers please e-mail me.
2) Weather. People are often concerned that this race is too early in the season and it’s too cold. The Snake River Canyon is usually 10 degrees warmer than the Spokane and Pullman areas. Last year almost all competitors were in shorts for both races
