Race Day Logistics

Check-In and Bib Pick Up:

The Registration Tent will be open from noon until the start of the race. Come early to avoid the crowds! Race bibs are filed by last name. Be sure to be in the correct line.

You can pick up bibs for your teammates, but you must go to the different sections of the Registration Tent to locate their bibs which are filed by last name. To avoid confusion, you must let your teammates know that you've picked up their bibs, so they don't wait in line also.

All Bibs contain a chip that is needed to record your time. You will need the tear-off tab portion of the bib for picking up your race T-Shirt.

Bib Placement:

Please pin your bib on the FRONT of your shirt and be sure it can be seen at all times.

Start Times:

RUNNERS will start at 6:00 PM at the starting line in front of the State House. If you are not an experienced runner, please do not line up in the very beginning of the pack... you will be trampled. This is an event for all levels of runners/walkers but keep in mind, there are competitive participants.

WALKERS will start at approximately 6:05 PM, immediately after the runners, using the same starting line.


We will be doing a true start and end time. The timer of the race will use the chip in your bib to record the time that you actually step over the starting/finish line to record your time.

Toilets and Water:

Many Port-O-Lets will be available. Be sure to drink plenty of water before the race!
A water stop will be available on the course.


Please try to carpool as it is very busy and the City of Montpelier has limited parking.

Participants may park in the parking lots of any State of Vermont office building along State Street and Taylor Street (at the end of the day on May 16, 2019), unless a space is signed or reserved for a specific reason, participants may also park at Montpelier High School.

Absolutely no parking on: Memorial Drive; Green Mountain Drive; Governor Akin Ave.


Once you get your race bib at the registration tent, go over to the t-shirt tent. We set up the tent by t-shirt sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL), so hop in the line of the t-shirt size you want. There is a t-shirt tab on your race bib that we will collect when we give you your t-shirt. We purchase a high quality pre-shrunk cotton shirt, so there is minimal shrinkage; they stay true to size.

You can pick up t-shirts for your teammates if you have their t-shirts tabs from their bibs. If you pick up the wrong size, they can come switch out the shirt later.

The T-Shirt tent will be open after the race as well, but the size selection will be reduced the later you pick up your shirt.

T-shirts will be for sale after most of the racers have picked up their shirts. The cost will be $5.00.

Any leftover shirts following the race will be donated to a charity in need of clothing.


Refreshments will be provided to participants after the race.
