10AM – 12 PM at Wilderness Voyageurs in Friendsville, MD. You will be able to register the day of the race at Wilderness Voyageurs in Friendsville from 10 AM until noon. However, registering prior to the check in will help expedite the process ( and save you $).

If you register in advance, you still must pick check-in, sign your waiver and pick up your bib by noon.  This means, if you are racing, you physically must stop by the shop and do these things.

If you register the day of the race it is $35.
