24 HOUR RACER PARKING: There is a parking lot just to the north of the Stone Cottage that will be reserved for those folks running the 24 Hour race. It is close to both washrooms and the race path, so it is convenient for the 24 hour runners. This parking lot will be closed and vehicles will not be permitted to enter or leave between 7:50am to Approx. 5pm on Saturday.
OTHER PARKING: There are parking lots to the east and west of the Stone Cottage. The lot to the west is very close to the start of the Marathon. The lot to the east is very large and only a few hundred meters from the Stone Cottage.
Self Support Areas
Each participant in ALL races have space available on the outside of the track for their own aide station/hydration system etc. Have a friend set up a table and hand you what you need while you run, use a hydration vest or carrying water bottles and gels etc. Whatever you choose to use, practice before race day so you are familiar with it.
NOTE that NO self-support stations are allowed along the inside of the track. We need to keep the inside of the track clear for runners, some of whom are racing to achieve a specific time for a Boston Qualifier in the marathon. We have 2.2530 km. of course so find a spot on the outside of the track to set up your station. 24-Hour participants get first dibs on locations in the southeast corner of the track. See map below. We’ll be marking individual support locations along the east and south track with stakes or flags in order to keep all stations suitably separated.
