Parking has been known to be an issue, so plan accordingly and you’ll be on time to take part in one of the best races of this winter!

Please read all street signs and obey parking regulations. Take the MBTA if possible to reduce traffic, parking congestion, and ecological impact.


Do not check any valuables. Although we will do our best to ensure that your gear is waiting for you at the end of the race, we are not responsible for lost items and/or gear check bags.


There are restrooms available on site. Please respect the surroundings to ensure we are able to continue using the park as our home base.
