There is also parking at:

  • Bartlet Street, at least 100 yard behind the finish line.
  • Park St
  • 90 Main St Lot

If there is meter parking or parking where you need to pay and leave a slip on the dash board, make sure you follow the how and when if it is required.

Post-race refreshments:

Water, bananas, oranges, cereal bars, bagels, and (optionally) a pancake breakfast!

About your bib number:

You must wear your bib number on your front torso, and it must visible when you cross the finish line. Please do not wear the bib on your back, nor bend or fold it, or your finishing time may not be recorded. No bib number, no finish time.

Please do not give your bib number to someone else! Doing so is dishonest, and messes up the results and awards ceremony. It also causes insurance and emergency medical risks for the event.

About bandits:

Instead of registering for the race, some people, aka bandits, just show up and run without a bib number. Do not bandit this race! Thousand of people have registered and paid toward our cause. When you run or walk without registering, you are thumbing your nose to those who have paid, as well as the veterans benefiting from the event.
