Parking and Directions
The start of the race is approximately at 202 Merrimac Street on the corner of Kern St. Almost all of the streets off of Merrimac Street are parking friendly. Please be courteous and respectful to the neighbors living in these neighborhoods and be sure to not block a driveway or park too close to a fire hydrant.
Carpool if you can – we are expecting a big crowd! Keep in mind that if you arrive less than 1.5 hours from the start, it is best to not drive too close to the start line as you may have to sit in traffic.
