Why rent a tent package with your registration?

Beat the heat and make set-up a breeze! You may either rent your tent when you register. Or, register first, talk it over with your team, and add a tent package later … while they still last.

Registration alone does not include tent packages. Teams may set up their own shade tents in a designated camping area, but spaces are limited. Add a tent today and enjoy the convenience of having your own shaded space, with table and chairs, set up in advance by our professionals.

Be closer to the muddy action … and most importantly, proceeds from your tent rental help support programming for special needs children throughout our state.
