IMPORTANT NOTE:

This year, due to the construction occurring from 2019 – 2020 on West Victoria Street,
we will be Boogie-ing the Shore once again!

We were so excited to hear all the great feedback about this new to us location for 2019, and look forward to seeing you all at McDonald Park once again in 2020!

If you missed our 22nd annual Boogie, you can take a peek at our race maps to see our new routes!

As Boogie continues to grow, we continue to work to improve your experience. So new last year: Wave Starts!

If you are new to running and race events, a wave start is a technique that we use to send participants off in smaller groups (called “waves”), with a short time delay between each group. The idea is to stretch the field out over time, so that you will be able to get off to a better start, and so that you won’t be delayed at any possible bottlenecks along the way. Please take a look at the wave chart below to determine your starting time for Boogie.
