PARTICIPANT INFO

If you need help with accessibility for registration, please contact Marina Carroll at marina.carroll@hknc.org

Bibs and/or other items will not be shipped internationally.
You may participate and still be able to post times & photos!

Why two color options for T-shirts?
Visually it is easier to watch someone use sign language if they wear clothing to contrast their skin tone.
