There will be packet pick-up at Road Runner Sports in Tualatin the day prior from 4-8pm. Each registration comes with a cape, which are first-come, first-served, so picking up your stuff early could be a good idea if you are picky. Additional swag includes a race medal and a pretty sweet bib, if you are into those. And obviously, come decked out in your favorite superhero costumes!
While some runners may balk at supporting a nationwide race series as opposed to a local one, I can vouch for the main local charity that is being supported – Boxes of Love. I work with Embrace Oregon in my non-running life and believe this is a very worthwhile cause. Any little bit helps, but feel free to read about the race charity mission here.
