We will be utilizing a staggered start for each age group to ensure proper social distancing and timing of each participant and to keep the course from being too crowded. We will start with our youngest participants, then feature our adaptive division and finally our older participants.
The Walnut Street School Parking Lot, on the corner of Walnut Street & Elm Road is where most people should park and is the most convenient to the race. Families parking in this lot will need to wait until the entire bike portion of the event has concluded prior to leaving. If you are on a tight schedule and not sticking around post-race, then park in the parking lot on Lowell Avenue, Hull Street or a side street that is not near the bike section of the course.
