Registration is OPEN!

We finally opened registration this morning!   Welcome to Lightbox who will be handling  our on-line registrations. We chose  Lightbox this year for their ease of registration and  for some added features we think you will enjoy! Sign-up to have your race results texted to your cell phone and/or posted directly to your Facebook page.  You can even have your results automatically emailed or texted to other people, or sign up to track a friend’s results.   iResult displays will be available  on race day  so  you can review your results as soon as you finish.   What are you waiting for?  Register TODAY!

Slightly New Course for 2016

Please note that the course for the 20th Annual St. Charles Children’s Home 5K taking place on September 5, 2016 will change slightly.  The Pease Tradeport Authority has notified us that Goosebay Drive might be closed for our 5K on Labor Day.  Our course will still be certified and a new course map will be posted once it is available. We have kept the current map posted so new participants can have an idea of the race course.  We are hoping the only adjustment needed will be moving the start and/or finish line.

Construction Zone – Allow Extra Time

For those of you who are coming from out of state or out of town, you may not know that the Spaulding Turnpike, Route 16, around Pease International Tradeport is under construction.  It looks really messy but Exit 1 is still open to get to the Tradeport.  You just may want to give yourself some extra time to get there as traffic is moving slower through that area.
