Registration:

MCRRC Members –

This race is part of our low-key race series and is FREE for MCRRC Members.  To signup for your free 2022 MCRRC member bib, please signup HERE. *** If you already signed up for a personalized 2022 bib, you do NOT need to register online – your bib will be waiting for you at registration.

All members must signup for a new bib & chip.  If you have a 2020 (or older) chip, please bring it with you to exchange for a 2022 bib & chip.  If you are a new member, or no longer have an older chip, please remember to bring your $5 chip deposit with you.

Non-MCRRC Members –

Registration will open to non-MCRRC members at a cost of $15 per race for participants ages 18 & over and $10 for participants under 18.  Online registration will remain open until the start of the race.  Late registrants may register online before leaving the house or from your smartphone at the race site. Please allow enough time to register with your phone and return your phone to your car before the start of the race.

Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area.  A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.  Non-members can registere here.

Young Runs*:  

MCRRC is excited to bring back youth running events in 2022.  Please know that our youth races will follow COVID protocols as required by state and local health authorities at the time of the event, but will otherwise look much like “regular kids’ runs.”  This means you can generally expect groups of kids bunched up at the start, laughing, cheering, maybe a couple trips and falls, probably some parents jockeying for good camera angles, and maybe a treat at the end.  With COVID still circulating in the community, we understand not everyone will be comfortable in this environment but hope to see those of you who are on race day! Please note that by participating in this event, parents & guardians accept full responsibility for their minor’s participation.

There will be no timing chips used for the young runs.  The runs are FREE, but all participants must be registered by a parent or guardian on race day.

Refunds:

If you are a non-MCRRC member, and can no longer attend the race, please contact office@mcrrc.org so that we can move your registration to another MCRRC low-key event and open up a spot for someone else.  Monetary refunds will not be provided.

Health & Wellness:

Now more than ever, please pay close attention to your health prior to attending this event.  If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or another person with COVID-19, please stay home.  If you have cold symptoms, a mild fever, or just “don’t feel well,” we ask that you please stay home. All participants are subject to temperature checks at the discretion of our race staff.

Volunteer!

MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers.  Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event – signup here to volunteer!
