Beer Tent: The folks from Wachusett Brewing Company are back and will be selling their outstanding wares at reasonable prices to thirsty racers and friends/family.

Team tents: There are 10 team tent spots available by pre-reg ($20 per spot) and if any spots are left on race day, they will be allotted on a first-come-first-served basis at $20 per spot.

Preriding: NO ONE should be on the course pre-riding during a race. To pre-ride, ONLY enter the course BEYOND the start/finish line when the official confirms that the last rider from the previous field has begun their last lap. DO NOT PASS anyone still racing. Failure to do so can result in disqualification.

Juniors:  ALL JUNIORS RACE FREE! We are proud to offer this benefit to our young riders and their families. Beginner (Cat 4/5) Juniors will race with their corresponding Beginner field (Cat 4/5 Junior men will race with the Cat 5 men, and Cat 4/5 Junior women will race with the Cat 4/5 women).  The Cub Juniors (9-11 & 12-14) will race together (boys and girls) but will have the course to themselves.

From I-495 north or south, take exit 27 (Bolton/Stow Route 117). Follow Route 117 west for 4 miles to the fairgrounds. Please enter through Gate 2 for parking, which is in the field on the left. Registration will be in the large white tent in the center of the grounds.
