NEW REGISTRATION PROCESS THIS YEAR!
This year, there will be NO ON-SITE REGISTRATION ON RACE DAY. Runners waiting until the last minute to register must do so before arriving at Waveny, either on a computer at home or on a phone at the park. Once you’ve done that, you can move on to the pre-recorded registration line. With a departure at 11:30 am, you have plenty of time to register online in advance.
While the mobile app makes check-in quick and easy, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of our early check-in at New Balance New Canaan on Friday and Saturday, especially if you’ve ordered a shirt or hat.
This process was used during the Darien road race in September and made the race day a lot smoother. We hope you will agree once you use it here.
