The Marathon Wait List Is Now Closed

At this point in the process, we have closed the marathon wait list. Prospects for receiving an entry via the wait list are now unlikely. Those looking for an entry are best advised to monitor and/or solicit a transfer via our Facebook page.

Also, please be aware that on October 1st we must shut down all transfers and registrations in order to send the registered runner list to our bib printer. We also at that time share our list with our safety partners (medical, EMS, fire and police) to ensure the safety of our runners.

Marathon – Sold Out

The high level of interest in the Baystate Marathon (thank you runners!) means that we have reached maximum capacity. Registration for the marathon is closed.

Managing Your Registration

You can manage and make changes to your registration on-line.

Things you can do are:

  1. Verify your registration and/or edit personal details
  2. Switch between the marathon and half marathon
  3. Transfer your registration to another person

Portable Toilets – We’ve Got’em

Portable Toilet Map

Need A Bathroom?

The bane of every marathon race director!  The lowly portable toilet (aka port-a-john).

Every year this is at the top of the gripe list and every year we increase the number of toilets.  And it’s no different in 2014.  We’ve again increased the number of toilets, even though we’re well ahead of the recommended race planing average.  This year there will be 70 toilets in the area (compared to 60 last year).  We are running out of room for them :-)

One thing we’ve noticed is, some are over utilized and many are under utilized.  So, to help you on race day here is a map of the expected locations of the toilets.  Happy…. ah… whatever on race day.

Registration is back up

Lightbox Registration System is Down

Our registration system at Lightbox is currently down.  The folks at Lightbox are working to correct the problem as soon as possible.

Marathon Wait List – FULL

The wait list for this year’s marathon is full.

If your name is on the wait list, you will be notified when a spot becomes available. When you reach the top of the list, you will get an email with a “bypass” code that will allow you to register.  You have 72 hours to complete the registration process before your spot is given to the next person.

Good luck.

On-Line Registation Is Up Again

We have been informed by Lightbox credit card processor (authorize.net) has fixed the problem that knocked us off line.

Volunteer Registration is Open

Save $5

Save Me

Save yourself five bucks by registering before Friday August 1st.

As Friday arrives – at midnight – so do the new prices.  We will still be one of the most affordable races you can find – at $80 for the marathon and $60 for the half.

But hey – five bucks is five bucks – so save it and register now!
