Wheelchairs must pre-register by Sept. 20 to ensure safety precautions with local police.

Registration, start, finish, brunch and awards ceremony take place behind Rite Aid at the end of the Bike Path near Highland Avenue and Grove Streets in Davis Square.

We highly recommend taking PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION; parking in Davis Square is expensive and you will get a ticket if your meter expires. The Davis Square T station is one block from registration; take the College Avenue exit and walk back on the busway when you reach the street.

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 on Grove next to Rite Aid and 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.
