PLEASE HELP US MAKE MONDAY MORNING SMOOTH BY REGISTERING AND/OR PICKING UP YOUR PACKET ON SUNDAY.
PACKET PICKUP: You can pick up your packet, including your shirt, during the registration times noted above. If you registered after regular registration ended, you will probably not get a tee shirt. There are extras which will be assigned to first registered (online or in person). Every finisher will receive a Finisher's medal.
If you have done this race before, you know we are rather casual.
Awards: Everyone who finishes earns a delightful hand-made finisher medal. We also award kid-designed awards for 1st place male and female ONLY in each of the three events. No age group awards. While we love a winner and a competition, Stars has always been more about personal challenge—
Honoring America's Fallen Heroes by Having the Courage to Get Strong—in body, mind and spirit.
Timekeeping: We are also rather casual about time keeping. We do have a professional clock, courtesy of our parent organization, Challenge Dakota, and First Interstate Bank Community Foundation, but no professional timekeepers here, just our lovely volunteers. Thus we need your help in doing the best we can to get it right:
