REGISTRATION:

MCRRC Members –

This race is part of our low-key race series and is FREE for MCRRC members.  Race registration is not required for members; however, members must signup for a 2023 bib & chip.  The signup is coming soon!  If you have a 2022 (or older) chip, please bring it with you to exchange for your 2023 bib & chip.  If you are a new member, or no longer have an older chip, please remember to bring a $5 chip deposit with you.

*** If you already requested a personalized 2023 bib, you do NOT need to register online – your bib will be waiting for you at registration.

Non-MCRRC Members –

Registration will open to non-MCRRC members at a cost of $15 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 remember to bring your credit card or cash with you if you plan to register on race morning. Non-member registration is coming soon!

Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area.  A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.

 

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.

 

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.  The volunteer signup for this race is coming soon!
