If driving, we recommend that you drive to ALEWIFE T station in Cambridge, located near the intersection of Rtes 2 and 16, and park in garage located there. Take the T one stop inbound to Davis Square.

Meters are $1.00 per hour and early Saturday morning you will find parking on the street. There are metered parking lots one block south of Highland; also on Day Street and one behind Harvard Vanguard on Buena Vista off Holland.

We offer bag check-in during the race. 

After Active registration closes on October 2 you can still register in person at our office until 5:00 pm on 10/3 or day of the race at our registration tables near the starting line.
