Packet Pickup/Race Day Reg: 7:30-9AM at Saugus Center in front of the Town Hall. Packet pickup is on race day only, unless otherwise noted.

Course:  Choose from a 5K, 10K or 1 Mile Walk.
The course is a mix of flat and rollers with one good size climb. All distances start at the same time and all fuel stops will have water and electrolytes. Strollers and dogs are welcome.

Kids Fun Run Course: This 1/4 mile Kids Fun Run is targeted for those 10 and under starting at 8:45am. Pre-registered kids will be guaranteed a t-shirt. The run will start right at the closed off rotary and will finish under the High5EM finish archway on Taylor St. If your child is 8 & under and wishes to participate in the 5K or 10K and the Kids Fun Run please sign he/she in the individual category so he/she will receive an official race time.

1 Mile Walk: New in 2021, this walk has been added to those looking to participate in the event and receive all the race accolades without having to run.

Virtual Option: We learned a lot from the 2020 pandemic, one of which being the limitless virtual world, where scheduling conflicts and traveling are no longer a problem. We now have a virtual option for the Gold Star Run. You'll have all weekend to complete your preferred distance while receiving all the glory including all the swag and an even an opportunity to submit your race results. Unfortunately you won't be eligible for awards but you will have the opportunity to download a finishers certificate upon completion. 

Team/Club Category: This is an easy and fun way to recruit your family and friends. Teams must consist of at least 2+ people. Prizes will be awarded for the largest & fastest team. 

Corporate Cup Challenge:  This event has been very successful in corporate involvement over the years, in 2019 alone, collecting over $30K in supporting sponsorships. This challenge in it’s debut year, aims to add more of a friendly competition between these corporations and encourage more participation on race day. In it’s debut year, the race's Corporate Challenge, is expected to 15-20 supporting corporations competing for the Gold Star Corporate Challenge Cup - and bragging rights - at the October 16th event in Saugus, MA. The challenge is divided into three divisions: women only, men only, and co-ed.

The challenge pits teams of at least two employees from valid corporations and partnerships throughout New England. The teams will be scored using net times and will be adjusted by age and gender. The top two runners count toward the overall score, and there is no limit to the number of runners who can be entered on a team.

Awards are presented to the individuals scoring for the top three teams in each classification. The winning teams also receive the coveted Corporate Challenge Cup for display at their organizations.
