SAG Support Vehicles.
SAG shuttle vans will be driving the route and stopping at each open Aid Station to provide transportation for event participants who are unable or unwilling to finish the event. The vans will continue the route until they are full and then head downtown to the start and finish line where they will drop you off and then return the route. We will have 6 vans working the route and at the beginning of the event it may take longer to get back to the finish line so please be patient.
We will also have SAG chasers that will be patrolling the route in between Aid Stations looking for participants who are unable to finish the event and take them to the nearest open Aid Station so the SAG shuttle van can take them downtown.
All SAG support vehicles will be identified with SAG signs on the vehicle and a YELLOW SAG SIGN on the driver’s side windshield.
Thank you and have a safe ride.
