The Super Sunday 5 is a little of something old, a lot of something new, and definitely one of the most unique races in New England. Our new 5 mile course revives an old favorite: the legendary Doc Linskey Road Race.
Bustonian Bailout 5K
If 5 miles is too long for ya, just peel off at the 5K split in Inman Square and punch your ticket for the Bustonian Bailout, a rockin' party-ride back to the start/finish area. (Sorry, no awards for 5K runners.)
Super Sunday Party
As always, Super Sunday will have a great post race event. New this year, we'll have 5 different breweries pouring Super Sunday love along with free food and some kick-ass live music from BearFight. You can purchase guest party tickets during the registration process.
Entry fee is $35 until 12-noon Thursday 2/2
$37 from 2/2 until 12 noon 2/3 when online registration closes
Day of registration will be available but at least $40. (yes, it might be more)
RACE Ambassadors run for free; more info here.
Cancer survivors run for free; please email email@example.com.
Sorry, no walkers this year; we have a tight schedule.
Awards for top 3 male and female overall (custom trophies + $500 cash), age groups (18 & under, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+), and fastest teams. Bustonian Bailout 5K runners will receive an official 5K time but no awards.
Teams are scored by the cumulative time of your top 5 runners and at least 2 must run like girls. (ie, at least 2 females per team) We'll have prizes for the top three scoring teams as well as a special prize for the largest team. Free tshirt for team captain of any team with at least 5 members.
The course is mostly flat and fast with few turns, starting and finishing in Kendall Square on Linskey Way. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/64366386

RACE Assurance Plan
Worried about postponements, cancellations or injuries? Our optional RACE Assurance Plan ($5) reimburses 100% of your entry fee if the race is canceled for any reason whatsoever or postponed to a date or time which you can not attend. This plan also permits you to transfer - at no additional cost - your entry to another person if you can not participate due to illness or injury. Each plan covers one paid entry.
Postponement, Cancellation and Refund Policy
In the event of inclement weather, the event may be postponed to another date. No refunds will be issued due to conflicts with the postponement date. If RACE must cancel the event due to circumstances beyond their control, no refunds will be issued. Bottom line: RACE does not control the weather, nor does RACE issue refunds unless RACE really screwed up. Please remember, all proceeds go to charity.
