MOM Race parking is first-come, first-served in the two Starr Jaycee Park lots off of 13 Mile, in the residential neighborhoods surrounding the race course, and in designated parking lots north of the park.  Please obey all posted parking regulations including temporary no parking zones associated with the MOM Race.

Please meet at the large Starr Jaycee Park pavilion (equipped with restrooms) on Saturday morning from 8-9:30 AM to pick up your racing packets and participate in pre-race festivities.  For those who choose to pick up their packets on Friday night, please be at the starting line near Cedar & Butternut by no later than 9:50 AM.

Packet Pick Up

Registered MOM Race participants have the option of picking up their race packets (commemorative T-shirt, racing bib, etc.) in advance or on race morning.

Advanced packet pick-up will take place on Friday, May 1 from 5-7 PM at the First Congregational Church of Royal Oak, located at 1314 Northwood Blvd on the west side of Crooks Rd. Please park in the lot behind the building, follow MOM Race signs to the main entrance, and proceed to the Social Hall. You will be prompted to stop, look up your name, find your bib number, and report to the corresponding packet pick-up line. You may also look up your bib number in advance (link provided after online registration closes).

It is ok to pick up your friends' and family members' packets, but please be sure to notify them to avoid any miscommunications or wasted trips. If you are picking up five or more race packets, please proceed to the designated "Team & Multi-Packet Pick Up" line. If you are the captain of a large 15+ person team that pre-arranged for a group pick up, please proceed to the same area to retrieve your team box.

If you'd rather wait and pick up your race packet(s) on race morning, that's fine too. Same-day packet pick-up will take place at the large Starr Jaycee Park pavilion on Saturday, May 2 from 8-9:30 AM. Please allow ample time for parking plus additional time to pick up packets and proceed to the start/finish line. The MOM Race will start promptly at 10 AM from the south side of the park near Cedar & Butternut. We cannot postpone the start of the race for late-comers.

Just a reminder that last-chance registrants who sign up after April 15th are not guaranteed their requested T-shirt/size. While we make every reasonable effort to ensure no one goes home empty-handed, if you are one of the final last-chance registrants, you may be given an alternate T-shirt size and/or be asked to check back after the race. Thank you for your understanding.
