A medical team will be onsite for any hiccups that happen. 13.1 miles is a long way, so train and listen to your body on race day, please!

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.

We will be offering shuttles from both the middle and highschool – about a 5 minute drive away

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.
