2023 Mid-Winter Classic: Race Information

The 2023 Mid-Winter 10 Mile Classic will be race #1 for the 2023 Maine Track Club Grand Prix series. Points will be awarded based on performance at each MTC race, and prizes and bragging rights will be given out at the end of the year at the Annual Banquet.

The gun will fire on Sunday, February 5th, 2023 at 9:45 a.m. The start and finish lines are at Cape Elizabeth High School at 345 Ocean House Rd.

We will also have a virtual racing option for the week leading up to the race, where you can run 10 outdoor miles at any time from January 30 through February 5th, 2023. You must report your run by 11:59pm on February 5th.

You may run both the virtual and in person options for the race, but you may not count the in person race as your virtual result. They must be run separately. You will only get credit for one event (in person or virtual) for the Maine Track Club Grand Prix.

Registration

Note: Registration is now closed for the in-person race in 2023. You can still signup for the #MWCinTheWild virtual race until the race starts on February 5th.

Bib Transfer

Note: Bib transfer ended on January 15th, and we have already ordered and printed the bibs.
