Early packet pick-up will be available on Friday, August 24th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm at the BEAN BOOT on the L.L.Bean campus. We will also accept additional race registrations at that time.

We ask that all participants who are less serious about their 5K time allow more serious athletes to lead the race. Dogs are welcome to run, walk, or hitch a ride in a stroller along next to you!
