PARKING· Parking for the full distance 16.20 race will be at College Pond in the Myles Standish State Forest
Relay Parking and Information on how it works
Runner 1 (running 4 miles) to start at College Pond at 8:00 am with field of 16.20 full distance participants. Runner 2 (running approximately 5.2 miles) & Runner 3 (running 7 miles) can head right out to the transition area at the intersection of Upper College Pond and Fearing Pond Road. Park your car in the designated parking area and come up to the transition to wait for your runner. Runner 2 takes over while runners 1 & 3 stay right at the intersection to wait for runner 2 to complete their leg of the relay and switch to runner 3. When runner 3 heads out of the transition, runners 1 & 2 drive back to College Pond to wait for their runner to finish.
If you have spectators coming for either distance, we encourage you to all come in one car as there is limited parking and it will reduce the amount of traffic on the roads in the forest during the race.
Car travel for the race will only be allowed along Upper College Pond Road from the start to the transition area. For runner safety, please DO NOT try to follow the race course as some of the roads are narrow.
Directions to transition:
Take a right out of the College Pond Lot
At the intersection of Alden Road and Upper College Pond Road take a right onto Upper College Pond Road
Follow 3 miles to Fearing Pond Road where the transition area is located.
