Great Cranberry 100

Crow Athletics hosts the great Cranberry 100! This year's event begins on August 17th at 12pm noon. Event details are all available on the website. The event link is provided below.

  • Runners MUST start at 12-noon on Friday to be included in results
  • There is a mandatory pre-race briefing at 11:00am before the run.
  • All runners must be self supported with fluids, food, and gear for the duration of their run. There will be tables on the course located at the start/finish line.
  • Runners must have a minimum of one support crew, although we strongly recommend bringing at least two crew members. 100-miles is a long way and two people will ensure split shifts for sleep during the night.
  • Timing sheets (provided) must be completed by support crew upon the completion of each 4-mile lap at the start/finish line. Failure to turn in a completed time sheet will result in a DQ.
  • There will also be a google doc HERE and times should be added by crews using personal smart-phones, tablets.
  • There is a 30-hour time limit. Time checks are all listed on the Crow Athletics website/Great Cranberry 100. 
  • Overnight runners MUST have a working headlamp, a blinking tail light and a reflective vest worn 1/2 hr before sunset which occurs at 6:37 pm and until 1/2 hr after sunrise, at 4:39 am. If runners are seen by a race official or reported by other participants as not wearing appropriate night gear the competitor may be DQd
  • Support crews must wear reflective vests during the same overnight hrs.
  • Free camping for runners and crews is located near the start finish area.
  • Camping is available for Friday and Saturday Nights.
  • There will be a bonfire near the camping area.
  • Bring everything you might need or wish you had.
  • This is a real island, you can't drive your car here unless it floats. Don't worry just get on a boat (see below) and we'll help get you from the dock to the race start once you get here.
  • Runners wishing to do training runs or run lessor distances are most welcome!
  •  Support crews are encouraged to bring well stocked pop up tents to set up on the course (near the start finish area) to support their runners.
  •  Please bring your imagination, your frisbees, musical instruments or whatever and come enjoy our island!
  • This event is free! That's right - we're pulling a Millinocket!
