Overview

The Berbee Derby is a fun-filled community event that has been running 13 years strong! Our dedicated volunteers work hard year round to make your entire experience with the Berbee Derby a pleasant one. We’ve listed important information below to help you through the process of registering, arriving on race day and many other details of our event.

Registration

We’ve partnered with RunSignUp to process your registration information. Before registering for the Berbee Derby, we encourage you to read through the information below regarding important dates, time of the event, the different race categories we offer and parking. Register now.

Derby Village is where everything important will be on race-day morning: the race start, water, Orange Shoe Warm Up, and of course, those all-important porta potties. Consult the Derby Village map and be in the know on race-day morning.

PERKS & AWARDS

All pre-registered runners and walkers who pick up their bib numbers at packet pick up will receive a Berbee Derby long-sleeved t-shirt and Goody Bag stuffed with items donated by our generous sponsors. There are awards given out for top finishers.

Schedule

From early registration discounts to team registration deadlines and even race-day scheduling, this section provides you with all the information about where you need to be and when.

Routes & Maps

Both our 10k and 5k courses are distance-certified. Volunteers, rest stops (including bathroom breaks) and water stations will be located along the course.

Parking

Parking is always at a premium on race morning, so do arrive early. Our start and finish lines are nestled in between the Fitchburg Business Park and our surrounding neighbors with parking available on the outskirts of each. Find out the best place to park based on the direction you’ll be coming from and timing of when you’ll need to head out. (Did we mention you should plan on arriving early?)
