Early Number/Shirt Pickup and Day Before Registration

Early number/shirt pickup and last-minute registration ($30.00 for your procrastinating friends) at the Winner’s Circle Sports Bar, 211 Elm Street (Rte 110), Salisbury MA on Wednesday evening, November 26, from 6:00PM until 9:00PM. It is a popular evening for the sports bar, so consider parking in the shopping center off of Merrill street (see the Google map linked above). The big store in the shopping center is vacant, so there is nearly unlimited parking in the lot in front of the store, very close to the Winners Circle. Number and shirt pickup will also be available on race day, but early pickup will allow you to “sleep in” (a little) and enjoy the race hassle free!

Race day registration and number/shirt pickup opens at 7:00AM Thursday morning at Pipestave.
