Late Registration for scenic coastal road race at Gloucester High School Saturday and Sunday
GLOUCESTER, Massachusetts — There’s still time to sign up for this Sunday’s Run Gloucester! 7-Mile race as online registration at www.rungloucester.com will remain open until noon on Friday.
“Online registration is easier and a little cheaper,” said race organizer Dave McGillivray, who is also race director of the B.A.A. Boston Marathon, the TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K in Maine and about 30 other major events throughout the U.S. and the world.
If you miss online registration, however, McGillivray says late registration will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the same time as bib pick up at Gloucester High School. Although not encouraged, bib pick-up and late registration will also be held race day from 6 to 7:45 a.m. at the high school. Online registration is $35, late registration is $40.
New this year, a Road Runner Club of America Expo with vendors will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Race day parking will be available at Gloucester High School and at Stage Fort Park.
Proceeds from the Run Gloucester! 7-Mile (www.rungloucester.com) will benefit the Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association which raises funds for Gloucester High School student-athletes, sports programs and facilities, and is a key supporter of the renovation of Gloucester High's Newell Stadium.
