Parking has been known to be an issue, so plan accordingly!  Parking is available around the reservoir and on Beacon St. Please read all street signs and obey parking regulations. Additional parking is available at Boston College Parking Garage.

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.
