*NOTE: Participants must take the commuter train on Friday prior to race day in order to compete. All distances start prior to 10:00 AM on both Saturday and Sunday. See our list of hotel partners for accomodations in Fitchburg adjacent to the shuttle pick up area.

SPECTATOR ACCESS

Aside from the Start and Finish Festival, spectators are able to see runners at Mountain Road Aid Station (walking distance from Start & Finish Area) and Summit Aid Station via SkyRide. The distances that impact this aid station are 50 Mile, 50K, Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon and 10K.

Spectators can ride for free thanks to the November Project, a FREE fitness movement that was born in Boston as a way to stay in shape during cold New England months. Now present in multiple cities around the world, the movement is using a simple sense of accountability to motivate and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels to get out of their beds and get moving.

Be sure to sign up for Athlete Updates to track your runner's progress!
