RUNNERS and WALKERS
Please DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VALUABLES UNATTENDED! We have had ipods, phones and car keys lost in the past. Please leave your valuables in your car or find a friend to look after them so we do not have that happen again.
ABSOLUTELY NO DOGS!! It is not that we are not animal lovers, but the crowd is too large, there are some people who are afraid of dogs, there are many children present at this event, and again, we have had issues with dogs becoming agitated by the large crowd or other dogs. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RUN/WALK IF YOU BRING YOUR DOG. We are sorry if this causes you not to join us, but it is our rule.
Strollers are allowed and welcome, we ask that you gather by the post labeled accordingly to start.
Those entrants who are walking are asked to walk on the sidewalks once the race stretches out so traffic may pass and everyone is safe. Walkers please obey traffic signals at intersections with lights. There will be police on the Prospect St bridge (and other locations) for safe crossing.
IN THE CASE OF AN EMERGENCY, POLICE, FIRE AND RESCUE VEHICLES WILL HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY AND YOU MUST STOP SO THEY CAN PASS! We have been fortunate to have never had an issue/incident, but public safety is of utmost importance.
We will have post race awards and celebration at Shopper’s Café,
731 Moody Street, Waltham. They will have outside space open and plenty
of room for all. It is a family friendly establishment that serves food and
drink. They are a big supporter of the Waltham community! You are welcome
at any time; we expect awards to be given out around 2-2:30pm.
We will also draw our raffle winners at that time as well! Please note - for those
over 21 the beer ticket that comes with your race bib can be redeemed for a
complimentary beer from the outside beer tent only - not the bar inside!
For the race:
There will be no parking on Moody Street from Crescent/Pine to the Charles River. Parking will also be restricted on Moody Street southbound from Crescent/Pine to High Street. Please park in one of the many city parking lots surrounding Moody St or in the Garage between Main/School/Common/Lexington Streets.
For the awards:
If possible, we ask that you walk to Shopper’s Café for the awards. There will be parking on Moody St as well as the side streets in the neighborhood, but it will fill up. Please be considerate of the neighbors and make sure you are parked legally for any part of the day. Thank you!
