On race day (Saturday, April 27) the first Miller Ferry boat to the island is at 7:30am followed by an 8:30am and 9:00am ferry.
If you are not staying Friday night on Put-in-Bay, we urge you to be on the 9:00am ferry (leaving Catawba, heading to Put-in-Bay) at the absolute latest in order to guarantee you arrive at the event location with ample time to get registered and stretched out for the start of the race.
If you are not participating in the race and are only coming to the island as a spectator of the Draft Day 5k, you can get on the 9:30am ferry but will be cutting it very close if you want to see the start of the race. (IF YOU ARE RUNNING THE RACE, MAKE SURE YOU GET ON THE 7:30AM, 8:30AM OR 9AM MILLER FERRY BOAT).
If you have not registered by April 13th, we cannot guarantee size of jersey, name on jersey, or if you will be able to receive a jersey.
