ARRIVAL & PARKING
We you arrive at the road race in Easton Massachusetts at Stonehill College you will follow the signs to "Runner Parking". This is a short walk to Runner Check-In. You'll be able to then return to your car if you wish to store any gear.
Please only use the Route 123 entrance to Stonehill College on race morning, as the other entrance will be closed due to the race course. We'll remind you of this in pre-race communications. Also, feel free to reference our ARRIVAL MAP here.
WEATHER & LIGHTNING CONSIDERATIONS
This is a SUMMER race. It will most likely be hot. Please anticipate this and make sure you are in the physical condition required to run in the heat of a New England July for the distance you are signing up for. Consider bringing a handheld water bottle or hydration pack if forecasted heat is higher than usual.
That being said, an electrical storm is always a small possibility, and is something that might force race management to alter or cancel the event in the interest of athlete safety. In the event of a lightning storm, race management reserves the right to do one of the following, depending on the situation:
- Delay the start of the race.
- Convert the full half marathon to an "on-campus" half marathon, that utilizes loops of the on-campus part of the course. In this scenario, we will open up a "lightning shelter" on the course, allowing athletes to seek shelter during a worsening lightning situation once the race has started.
- Convert the races to a 10k or a 5k to keep all athletes on the Stonehill College campus, closer to buildings and vehicles in the event that forecasted storms got too close. In this scenario, we will open up a "lightning shelter" on the course, allowing athletes to seek shelter during a worsening lightning situation once the race has started.
- Cancel the event all together (obviously a last-resort).
Please understand that there are no refunds due to a lightning delay/alteration/cancellation.
