If you plan to drink a beer or two after the race you are expected and required by law to have photo proof of being of the legal age. A wrist band will be issued to you at registration.
Bring a photo I.D. on race day. This of course is in accordance with Massachusetts general law.
This is a popular and competitive running event sanctioned by USATF in accordance with all rules and restrictions.
As a condition of the USA Track & Field sanction and rules, we must forbid baby joggers in the race.
For purposes of safety too, the use of headphones are discouraged (you don't need to be oblivious and lost in the groove with your ear buds in the midst of more than 3000 runners around you).
These rules are imposed for the safety of all participants. Please spare us, and you the embarrassment of being asked to leave the course and perhaps ruin your day.
NOTE: Any conduct such as using anything other than provided portable toilet facilities which are found in abundance will also be grounds for disqualification. You should be easy to I.D with your bib number and you could be barred for life. We have eyes everywhere so please don't embarrass the event or yourself.
Remember we are guests of the Endicott Estate neighborhood and the town of Dedham.
Please respect your running events, your volunteers and fellow runners. Cheers.
There is $10,000 in prize money offered with the 2022 USATF National Masters 10K Championship.
