Early Number/Shirt Pickup
Early number/shirt pickup and registration ($30.00
for your procrastinating friends) at the
Winner's Circle Sports Bar, 211 Elm Street, Salisbury MA on Saturday 12/31 from 12:00 noon until 2:00PM.
It is a popular afternoon for the sports bar (lots of football on TV),
so consider parking in the shopping center off of Merrill street (see the
Google map). 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
Race Day Number/Shirt Pickup
Race day number/shirt pickup and registration ($30.00) on Sunday
1/1/2012 from 9:30AM-11:00AM at the
Carousel Lounge at Salisbury Beach, MA.
Race day parking is
available in the large municipal lot adjacent to Rte. 1A (see
the parking map). There are other parking options on race day, but DO NOT
park in the lot adjacent to the Blue Ocean (marked with a X on the map) as it
is open for business New Year's Day. Also, there is NO RACE DAY PARKING
available on Ocean Front Street in the vicinity of the Carousel (this is the
race staging area).
Switching Between 5K and 10K Race
Each runner is registered for either the 5K or the 10K race distance.
You MUST run in the race for which you are registered. Please do not switch
events arbitrarily on race day. If you run in the wrong race you will be
disqualified from the awards. If you registered on-line, you can check your
confirmation email from active.com to verify your race distance. In addition,
lists of registered runners for each distance will be posted at the race web
site (link below) on Friday 12/30. If you wish to change distances, you must
BEFORE 4:00 PM on Saturday 12/31.
5K and 10K Race
Both races share the same start and finish line. Both start and finish
will be chip timed by Yankee Timing. Both race distances will start together
at 11:30 AM. The
5K course is a loop in town, while the
is out-and-back. The two races run together for the first 1.25 miles. At this
point on Central Ave., 5K racers will move to the left side of the road in
preparation for a left turn onto Rte. 1A south. 10K racers will stay to the
right side of the road in preparation for a right turn on to Rte. 1A north.
There will be signs and course marshals at this strategic point in the course
to make the divergence of the courses clear.
See you all on New Year's Day!
