Pro tips on navigating the town based on if you are a runner, volunteer or coming to watch and support the race. Our goal is a safe, efficient and frustration free experience for everyone coming and going in the two towns during race day.
Runners: No matter which race you are particpating in aim to get to parking before 8am so you get in before the 3K race starts. Avoid town traffic and take Route 2 to the intersection of Mechanic Street, and follow Mechanic Street directly to the parking attendants at the School where bib/number pickup is located. The start line is a half mile from the school.
Spectators: Try to get into town before the 3K starts at 8am.
