STARTING LINE INFO: Please review the starting line information and number pickup map to ensure that your evening “runs” smoothly. Race day number pickup will be held at the John Carver Inn and we request that all runners enter and exit according to the below map to keep all traffic flowing in one direction. Additionally, please see the starting line information map so you can see where the staging area is in reference to the John Carver Inn, tree lighting and actual starting line. Before the race begins there will be a series of starts and stops to allow for the parade, tree lighting and Santa to arrive.
IMPORTANT! Please be sure to bring a headlamp and/or flashlight with you to the race. The Plymouth Police have asked that all participants be illuminated with a light. If you have reflective clothing, please wear that as well.
There are several parking options available. All parking information can be found on the website: www.parkplymouth.com. Please remember it will be crowded in the area so leave time to park and walk to the start. The area we have for the race participants is on Main Street Extension near the Post Office. This is where we will wait for the parade to start before the race begins.
Please remember that the race is in conjunction with the yearly Christmas in Historic Plymouth event. We will be following the parade and Santa down Main Street at 6:00 pm. We will stop at the tree, wait for Santa to turn on the lights, then continue walking up to the starting line which is at Brewster Street.
There will be one water stop on the course at approximately the ½ way point.
The roads are open to traffic. If you are running with a stroller please plan to start at the back. We ask that you leave dogs/animals at home as they will not be allowed to run with you on the course. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to participate with a service animal.
