Two Races and a Howlin' Good Time
NEW DATE - WEDNESDAY - July 31, 2019
Join us for the 11th Annual Running With the Wolves 10K and the 2nd Annual White Fang 5k! Both races start at Kelleher Field in Marlborough and follow a beautiful, car-free, out-and-back course on the scenic Assabet River Rail Trail. Both races feature an exciting stadium finish inside Kelleher Field where your friends and family can cheer you on from the grandstand.
All participants who registered before 7/17/19 will receive a tech race shirt. Everyone gets a finisher's glass and a ticket to our Howl at the Moon After Party with free food and live music!
We have several shirts left for new registrants, we just cannot guarantee size.
These will be given out first come, first served.

Registration Packet Pickup
If you picked up your packet before the original race date, you are all set, just show up ready to run on 7/31/19 at 6:30 PM.
If you did not pick up your packet, please come as early as 5 PM to the start line area to collect your bib and awesome swag pre-race.
If you did not register yet, we are re-opening online registration until midnight on Sunday July 28, 2019.
The races have a combined cap of 550. We have sold 90% of the bibs, so if you want to run on the new date, please register early to guarantee your spot! We will close registration once we sell out.
If you would like your name or nickname on your bib, you must register by June 17th. All registrations after June 17th will be number only.
There will be a 90 minute time limit on both races. Walkers will be turned around at 45 minutes even if they haven't reached the turnaround point. Walkers are encouraged to participate in the White Fang 5k instead of the 10k in order to best meet the time restriction.
Due to capacity limitations of the Assabet River Rail Trail, the combined capacity for the 5k and 10k is 550 participants. Register early to ensure your place!
