NOTICE: To help prevent theft, if you are picking up for a friend you must bring a signed photocopy of their id. We will also accept an email to you if you can present this upon pick-up. We will release bibs to family members in the same household. If you pick up your packet before race day, you can by-pass the bib line when you arrive.

Getting there

There is parking onsite, but as always, MEC encuorages participants to carpool to the site.


Help us keep our races green by bringing your own water bottle. (Compostable cups and on-site recycling and composting will also be provided.)


The route will primarily run along paved trails in the park. The Half Marathon course may encouter some pack earth and then a stretch along a paved road.

There will be aid stations located approximately every 2.5K. All water stations will be equipped with MEC’s electrolyte partner nuun hydration.  nuun is high in electrolytes, yet low in sugar to keep you optimally hydrated throughout the race. Check out nuun products on

Route maps will be posted closer to the date.
