As a reminder, if you are in an event that crosses the U.S./Canada border, and 16 years of age or older, you will need a passport, passport card or enhanced drivers license (“EDL”). U.S. and Canadian children under the age of 16 participating in the Relay will be able to present the original or a copy of their birth certificate or other proof of U.S. citizenship such as a naturalization or citizenship card.
If for any reason (for example, emergency, carrying backpack) you are asked by CBP to identify yourself when crossing the border, you will be expected to present proper identification (passport or EDL). CBP actions may delay your re-entry into the U.S. Please note: it is not the intention of CBP to actively or randomly pull runners out of the race to review their documentation.
For more information about crossing borders as a participant of our race, please visit our international requirements page.
