2021 Mid-Winter Classic: Race Information

Preliminary 2020 Race Results: https://runsignup.com/Race/Results/27098/

Please note: the information below is all preliminary and could potentially change, so please check back in October or early November to make sure that we haven’t made any changes to the schedule once we started planning the next year’s race.

The 2021 Mid-Winter 10 Mile Classic will be race #1 for the 2021 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 7th, 2021 at 9:45 a.m.  The start and finish lines are at Cape Elizabeth High School at 345 Ocean House Rd.

Registration will in 2 waves this year. On Saturday, November 21st at 1:00pm, we will be opening 100 spots for Maine Track Club members only. You must be a member in good standing through race day by Thursday evening, November 19th, at 6:00pm in order to be able to register early. (Click here to check your registration status.)

Public registration for the remaining 900 bibs will open at 6:00 a.m. on November 23rd, the Monday before Thanksgiving. We expect the race to sell out quickly as it has the past few years. 

Waiting List & Bib Transfer

The waiting list will open as soon as registration closes. As bibs are turned back in and become available, our system will choose somebody at random and will give that person 2 days to sign up. Most of the unclaimed reserved bibs will be released in the first week of January.

We will once again allow bib transfers, which can be done through your RunSignUp account through mid-January, about 3 weeks before race day (exact date yet to be decided), and will give us enough time to print the bibs, mail them to our timers for their tags, and then get them mailed to us in time for packet pickup.

Please note that all waiting list registrations and transfers must be completed by then and that only the registered participant can use any specific bib, so if you transfer your bib or you do not have one transferred to you and you haven’t registered then we’d love if you could come volunteer but ask that you not bandit the race.

To transfer your bib to another runner:

  1. Sign In to RunSignUp
  2. Go to your Profile
  3. Click “My Registered Races”
  4. Click “Manage” next to the registration that you would like to transfer to another person
  5. Click the “Transfer To Another Runner” menu item
  6. Fill out all required fields

The person you are transferring to will then be able to claim your position in the race. There is a $5 fee to process bib transfers, paid by the recipient of the bib.

Please note that the recipient of the bib must signup before the deadline or else they will be unable to run in the race.
