Special Needs Bags

40 Mile Runners will have the option to pack a special needs bag and we will make it available at Mile 19 AND 31.5. You MUST drop off your special needs bag at early packet pickup on Friday. Mark your name clearly on your bag. Also mark clearly if the bag is for mile 19 or 31.5. You can pack any special food you will need or a change of clothes or a headlight. You can mail us your Special Needs Bag if you will not be at early packet pickup. Mailed special needs bags should be shipped to Scott Bassett 15 Owls Roost Ct, Greensboro, NC 27410

Please note, we will bring these bags back to the race finish. However, we will not transport any bags until the last finishers has passed the Special Needs Bag point on the course. So the bags at mile 31.5 will not be transported back to the finish until many of you have already finished the race (and gone home).
