Friday Shuttle Passes and Saturday Shuttle Passes can be purchased online in advance, as part of your Competitor Registration, for the nominal fee of $15 per person per day, if purchased by December 1, 2019 ($20 per person per day if purchased after December 1, 2019). A Friday Shuttle Pass will be required to ride the Shuttle on Friday. A Saturday Shuttle Pass will be required to ride the Shuttle on Saturday.

Each Shuttle Pass entitles you to unlimited round trips on the day covered by the Pass, within our Shuttle Schedule.

Friday and/or Saturday Shuttle Passes must be purchased in advance, and can be purchased online as part of your Competitor Registration (recommended), or on the Tickets page of this competition website.

The Shuttle Schedule will be posted as soon as possible after purchase of Shuttle Passes closes.
