Packet Pick-up and Check-in
Numbers and T–shirts can be picked up at New England Running Company, 43 Enon Street in Beverly on Friday, September 15th, 10:00AM – 6:00PM. All those who pick their packets up early will be entered into a raffle to win a pair of Salomon shoes! For those who cannot make it Friday, numbers can be picked up on the day of the race at the start/finish line from 7:00AM.  *First 100 runners registered are guaranteed a t shirt. Arrive early to avoid lines at check-in and/or bathrooms. We do start our races on time.

Trail Etiquette
The course was specifically designed to enable first-time trail runners and veterans to run side by side or individually and be challenged. We are competitive but not at the expense of enjoying each other’s company, embracing nature, or taking ourselves too seriously. Please be aware of other runners, be polite, chat and just enjoy the beautiful trail system on which you will be running.

Train Times (theses are correct as of 8/2023)
A portion of the race goes over train tracks.  Please be aware that the train times for Saturday are as follows:  9:27A, 10:12A, 11:27A, 12:12P.
