TIMELINE OF EVENTS

Please plan to arrive at Standish Park NO LATER THAN 8:15am! This will give the boys sufficient time to pick up/attach race numbers, use the restroom, take a team photo, warm up, and get to the starting line.
When you arrive, proceed directly to the Registration tent to pick up your race numbers, then come to the MPower table. Look for the MPower banner!
Wear your BLUE MPower t-shirt for the race. This will make it easier for us to find each other. If it is cold on race day, please wear the shirt OVER your long sleeves!
Plan to eat a light, healthy breakfast to give you energy for the race. Examples: banana, whole grain cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter toast. Remember: milk and heavier foods are harder to digest and could come back to haunt you during the race!
Be sure to use the bathroom BEFORE you come to the race. There will be plenty of porta-potties at the race, but the lines can be quite long.
**If you are not running with your son, please meet him at the Finish Line.**
We encourage all runners to stay after the race to cheer on the rest of our MPower group.
