2020 Whitin Five: Virtual Race Edition


The 2020 edition of the Whitin Five Mile Race & Two Mile Healthwalk will be VIRTUAL! The registration fee will be $0.00 but we are encouraging donations! We understand this past year has been difficult for many and we want you to still have the opportunity to be a part of the Whitin Five. A donation of any amount will be appreciated.

Race Proceeds:
This race will benefit the Whitin Community Center and the Massachusetts Audubon Society.

T-Shirts
*T-Shirts are not currently offered with your registration* If enough people are interested, Think Local Tee Shirt Printing is willing to set up an online store for you to purchase shirts by November 5th. They would be the usual long sleeve cotton shirts. Depending on how many people order, the price would vary from $9.50 - $11.50 per shirt plus $3 - $4 shipping. Please let me know if you are serious about purchasing a shirt later on in the registration form. I will be responsible for the unsold ones so we are trying to make sure we order the right number of shirts. We will send out an email blast with the store link if there is enough interest.

Course
You may choose to run or walk wherever you want! The Whitin Five course is USATF certified, # MA19008JK. The course is flat, rolling and fast. There is a video of the course on the Whitin Five website. If you decide to run the course please follow all COVID-19 safety protocols and be aware of the traffic - there will be no on-course amenities this year.

Results
You will be given information on how to submit your results in the confirmation email you receive after you sign up. You will be able to submit your results anytime between 11/20 and 11/30. Results will be posted on RaceWire on 11/1/2020. There will be no awards this year since everyone will be running a different course on different days in different conditions. We may have some random raffles where gift cards will be mailed to the winners.
