Runners will be transported via Birnie Bus luxury coach bus.  The bus will leave from the Birnie Bus headquarters located at Griffiths Business Park, Rome at 8:00 AM Friday August 26th with an expected return at 10:00 PM Saturday August 27th.

There are currently 30 seats available on the bus. There is a $50 charge for the trip exclusive of race registration.
