When to Arrive

Everyone knows it is impossible for ninjas to be stuck in traffic because they would just leap from car roof to car roof. But to be safe, we recommended that all participants arrive one to two hours prior to your race time. Race start times are every 20 minutes from 9am to 3pm. Remember that once you get there, you still have to:

  • Park
  • Check in
  • Attach bibs
  • Check bags
  • Take pictures
  • Make your way to the starting line dojo

Early Packet Pick-up

Omega Sports in North Hills

Friday, May 20th 2016 from 4pm to 7 pm

Check in and Packet Pick-up

Race day packets will be available one hour prior to the first wave at the packet pick-up dojo. Please have your Photo ID and waiver ready or you will not be able to participate (And no, you will not be able to out-ninja us and sneak in)

Your packet will include the following:

  • Race bib (Also acts as your bag check ticket, don’t throw it away!)
  • Free beer ticket wristband
  • Safety pins
  • Ninja Challenge Tech T-shirt
  • Ninja Challenge Ninja Headband

What to Bring

  • Valid Photo ID (You will not be able to participate without one)

  • A plastic bag for wet clothes, a bag for a change of clothes and personal belongings. There will be a bag check station
  • Spending money for beer, food, and Ninja Challenge gear.
  • Your Ninja Spirit. Just because ninjas are trained in the art of espionage, doesn’t mean they can’t be fashionable. Participants with the best ninja costume will be rewarded with some awesome Ninja Challenge gear.

There will be a gear check tent. Just remember to KEEP YOUR BIBS after you complete the race. Your gear will be organized by your bib number.

What Not to Bring
