Race day registration opens at 10:30 a.m. Pre-race check-in at New Balance New Canaan beginning Friday, November 23 from 4 to 6 pm, and Saturday, November 24 from noon to 3 pm.

All proceeds benefit the Open Door shelter.

New Registration Process This Year!

This year, there will be NO ON SITE RACE DAY REGISTRATION. Runners who wait until the last minute to register must do so before they arrive at Waveny, either on a computer at home or on a phone at the park. Once you have done that, you may proceed to the pre-registered check-in line. With an 11:30 a.m. start, you have plenty of time to register online ahead of time.

Although the mobile app makes checking in quick and simple, we strongly advise you to take advantage of our early check in at New Balance New Canaan Friday and Saturday, especially if you have ordered a shirt or hat.

This process was used at the Darien Road Race in September and made race day much smoother. We hope you'll agree once you've used it here.
