MCRRC Members –
Registration is FREE, but all MCRRC members must pre-register for this race.
2020 MCRRC member bibs will be reused for 2021. If you had a 2020 bib number, you should have entered it during registration. If you still possess a 2019 (or older) bib number, please register here for a 2020/21 bib and edit your registration. If you don’t know if you had a 2020 member bib, or can’t remember the number, you can check to find your 2020/21 bib number here. (It will help if you know it for bib pickup, too!)
If you registered for a 2020 bib & chip, but were never able to pick it up last year, you can do so on race morning near the start area. If you newly registered for a 2020/21 bib & chip, it will be waiting for you on race morning as well. A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.
If you previously registered for a 2020 bib & chip, picked it up last year, but have since misplaced it, please send a message to email@example.com so a timer can re-assign your number.
Please note that anyone picking up a member bib & chip will need to pay a $5 chip deposit OR turn in an old (2019 or older) chip.
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. Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area. A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.
If you are a non-MCRRC member, and can no longer attend the race, please contact firstname.lastname@example.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.
