Top 3 Overall M/F
Top 3 Master M/F
Overall Grand Master (50+)
Overall Sr. Grand Master (60+)
Age Groups (M/F)


In order to keep the race course thin, to provide everyone with plenty of time to finish, and to allow participants to get an early start; we will have three start times available.

The official start time for the event will be 6:30 am, with additional waves at 6:00 am & 5:30 am.

Because of the extended time for traffic control, there will be a $5.00 fee for each additional 30 minutes you register for (before the official start at 6:30 am). 

The earlier waves will also be limited in size to 50 participants each.

Boston Qualifying
