Parking & MBTA
You can park at the Franklin Park clubhouse, along the park road, or take the bus: #16 from Forest Hills & JFK stations.
The golf clubhouse will be open, but be advised that the bathrooms only have a few stalls. Leave plenty of time in case there is a line.
Number Pick-Up and Bib Tags
We’ll be inside the club house starting at 8:00 am. Your early pick up is appreciated to help keep things on schedule.
Your number has a tear-off tag on the bottom. You will need to tear that off at the finish line and hand to a volunteer to help us confirm finish order.
We will not have bag check, sorry.
Please be aware that in some locations on the course, the condition of the paving or concrete is poor. Watch your step throughout the course.
There will be one water stop on the course at approximately mile 1.5. This is at the right turn onto the path that goes towards the lovely view on Schoolmaster Hill.
The course crosses Circuit Dr. twice on the crosswalk. Please be sure to cross only at the crosswalk.
Awards & Results
We’ll have awards for best male and female overall, youth age group first place winners, and for the runner in the best costume, at approximately 9:50 inside the club house.
