With the overwhelming support from all of you, we are back at Wompatuck State Park for our 7th year in a row! You have committed yourself to helping us on our mission toward a cure for type 1 diabetes and we cannot wait to show you what we have in store for you this Sunday, October 14th! Over the last year we have been working on designing some new obstacles, we have mapped out a new course and we have made sure that the celebration at the end will leave you knowing you were at South Shore’s Biggest Block Party! It all unfolds at the campgrounds in scenic Wompatuck with a race through a mixture of paved trails and wooded terrain with over 25 obstacles along the 4 miles, all challenging but attainable! Below are a few key pieces of information that we want to pass along to you!

All pre-registered runners have the option of an early packet pick-up on Saturday, October 13th. Runners can beat the lines and pick up their runner’s packet at Marathon Sports located at 134 Washington Street, Norwell, MA between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM. A valid photo ID must be presented to pick up your packet. For those 21+ that wish to drink, a wristband can be secured on your wrist to keep overnight or you must check in at registration in the morning with your ID to obtain that wristband. You may pick up other participant’s packets only if you bring their original signed waiver and a copy of their ID, printed or on your phone, that clearly matches that registered runner. If you are picking up for someone over 21 they will not get their 21+ band or complimentary beer band until they present their ID at the registration tent on race day. To make the checking in process go smoothly, please have your confirmation email handy, either printed out or on your mobile device so we can scan the QR code. During this time runners will receive a 20% discount on all footwear, apparel and accessories.
