  • Path is open to the public
  • The paved asphault hike/bike path is open to the public during the event.  Please be courteous to others using the trail.  There are a few parking lot entrances that the course crosses (a couple might not have volunteers).  Rarely would anyone be slowed by cars (especially in November).

Boston Certification:  Not yet.  Hoping to have it certified in 2016 - still working on it.

Time Limits
We will wait for everybody to finish, however all must be done by the time the park closes at 8:00pm.  Everybody must be out of the park by 9:00pm.  Please be advised that it is getting dark by 6:00pm in this area.  The path does not go thru many heavily wooded areas but if you plan to be on the course after 6:00pm we advise that you carry lights.

Bag Drop
We will have a tent for Half and Full Marathoners to drop a bag for access during the race.  This area will be located near the starting line (5.75, 12.75, 19+ mile marks).  Please mark your bag with your race number, name, and telephone number.  There will be an aid station near the drop tent but it will not be permanently staffed.  Please do not put valuables in your bag and use this area for clothing and fuel only.

The parking lot is right next to the Start/Finish Area - there is no need for a bag check.
