HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – More than 6,000 people have already registered for Saturday’s race, and runners were busy picking up their bibs Friday afternoon.
Bib pickup and in-person registration started Friday from 3 to 6 and will pick up again Saturday. In addition to the thousands of people running, thousands more will gather to watch the race, starting off at Maple and Lyman street at 1 p.m.
Though bib pickup was busy Friday night as people got their numbers and t-shirts, race director Brian Donoghue noted that Saturday will be even busier. He said, “Right before the race, right around 11:30 and 12:30 it’s really nuts in here. We really encourage people come down early.”
Runners can pick up their bibs between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Saturday at 143 Maple Street at the main tent. Participants can choose to run the 10k race or the two mile walk.
