BENEFITS STUDENT ATHLETES
A substantial portion of the race entry fees go to the local high school cross country running programs. When you participate in the Bidwell Classic, you are supporting local student athletes.
Avoid race day crowds by stopping by Fleet Feet on Friday, March 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Fleet Feet is at 241 Main St in downtown Chico. You can pick up your timing chip, race number, and shirt or hat. See the HATS AND T-SHIRTS section below for more details.
March 1 packet pickup is also the last opportunity to register for the race.
You may also pick up your packet on race day, March 2, at Bidwell Park. Packets will be available prior to the race between 6:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m.
You must be registered to pick up your packet as there is no race-day registration.
HATS AND T-SHIRTS – YOUR CHOICE!
Every pre-registered participant has their choice of a technical shirt or hat. The hats are one-size-fits-all. The shirts are unisex. You may purchase an additional shirt and/or hat for $15 each with your registration, through February 17. Entrants registering after February 17 receive hats while supply lasts. Shirts will not be available to order after February 17, but both shirts and hats will be available for sale at packet pickup and on race morning while supplies last.
