Hello Runners and Walkers!
We are looking forward to another great race this year!
Here’s some important information to make the race fun and safe for all!
Online registration will close Thursday, April 30th at 6 p.m.
Check back to our BIB #’s page Friday night as we will post a list of names/numbers so you can look up your bib # before coming to check in.
BIB PICKUP AND RACE DAY INFO
Runners can register in-person (add’l $5 fee) at bib pick up on Saturday May 2nd from 12-4 p.m. at Shoppers, 731 Moody St. and on Race Day 10-11:30 a.m. at Embassy Park, 240 Moody Street, Waltham. Runners who are under 18 years of age MUST have guardian with then to sign up and sign waiver or they will not be allowed to sign up. Please arrive early or pick up your number on Saturday, if possible.
Also, although we love them, there are no dogs allowed, and no rollerblades/in-line skates. Strollers are allowed.
Safety is of upmost concern for all. If for any reason an emergency vehicle is needed, the runners will be stopped in order for them to have the right of way. We also ask that walkers and slower runners travel on sidewalks along the course wherever possible.
Parking will be restricted on Moody St. before and during the race. Please park in the Embassy Lot behind The Embassy Theater (entrance on Pine St), the lots behind Moody St (off Crescent/Spruce) or the Common St garage. Please see attached map for parking areas.
AWARDS/RAFFLES/POST RACE FUN
We will be handing out awards to the age group winners, as well as recognition for some special categories after the race ends at Shoppers as well as our raffle prizes. Plan to join us for some post-race fun at Shoppers for an after-race draft beer or soda compliments of Shoppers, and a bite to eat.
WEATHER and more …
The Moody St. 5K will be run rain or shine – let’s all hope for shine! There will be no refunds if you sign up and cannot participate. We will allow a bib transfer no later than Saturday, May 2nd. Bib transfers will not be permitted on race day!

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 3rd!
