Day-Before Number Pickup and Last Minute Registration – Saturday August 3

Pre-registered runners can stop by at the JackRabbit Running Store in Newburyport to pick up their shirts and numbers on Saturday, August 3 between 10 AM and 1 PM. What better way to make race day easy and fun? Just show up Sunday ready to run, no waiting in lines necessary! This will also be the last chance for runners to sign up for the pre-registration price of $25. Race day registration will be $30 for adults 16 and over (still $20 for youth 15 and under on race day).

Day-Of Number Pickup and Registration – Sunday August 4

Day-of registration and number pickup will be held at the Atkinson Common in Newburyport, MA from 7:30 AM until 9:00 AM. Race day registration will be $30 for adults 16 and over (still $20 for youth 15 and under on race day). Please arrive early for registration or number pickup no matter what heat you are in, as there is usually a substantial last-minute line. A good alternative is to pick up your number on Saturday (see above) so you can show up Sunday ready to warm up and race – no lines necessary.

Race Awards and Post Race Party

Race awards will be given out in front of the school, near the finish line, following the race.
