What are Clam Bucks?
Clam Bucks are wooden tokens worth $1 each. They can be spent just like cash. Each in-person participant receives 5 Clam Bucks with their race bib.
In 2023, we are once again offering an additional 5 Clam Bucks to participants who have their packet mailed or choose to pick-up their packets on Thursday or Friday.
When can Clam Bucks be spent?
Clam Bucks are valid for a full week, starting on the first day of race packet pickup, Thursday, through the following Wednesday. (Race day is Sunday.)
Where can Clam Bucks be spent?
Clam Bucks can be spent ONLY at participating chamber member businesses. See the current list on this webpage. Businesses will be given a sign that shows that they accept clam bucks.
Limit: 5 Clam Bucks per person, per business unless business allows otherwise.
