Race Info

In 2021 we must eliminate our bag check.  Instead, runners will be provided with a Ziploc bag in their kit pick up that can fit: ID, keys and wallet.

You may write your name and bib number on the bag and our volunteers will store it securely while you run. Drop off can be done in the 30 minutes prior to your event starting.

There is NO INDOOR access in 2021.  CMU will not be open for runners or volunteers.

Please consider using active transport (bus, bike, carpool or walk) or have a friend drop you off on Race Day.

  • Any side street close or near the event grounds
  • Shaftesbury High School (where permitted)
