A few tips for your fans on race day

FOLLOW WITH AT&T ATHLETE ALERTS

The B.A.A. is proud to bring AT&T Athlete Alerts back to the B.A.A. Half Marathon! With live updates from the five-mile and ten-mile marks, as well as the finish, you'll be able to track your favorite athletes as they run along the Emerald Necklace park system.

 

SPECTATOR PARKing IN NEARBY NEIGHBORHOODS

Parking within Franklin Park is prohibited on race day, and parking in Boston is never easy. If spectators choose to park their cars around the Franklin Park area, please follow these four tips:

  • Pay close attention to the street signs.
  • The earlier they choose to park, the better their odds are of finding a good spot.
  • Cars cannot be parked on any part of the race course.
  • Plan to park approximately .25 miles from the course and walk to the course.
  • Do not expect to be able to move a vehicle until after the last participant clears the course and the road is reopened to vehicular traffic.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

If you are planning to come to the event on a bicycle or with a stroller, please do not lock these items anywhere along the course where they may impede runner traffic. Bike racks will be available on race day. They will be located near the start corrals and will be identified with bike parking signs. Please ask your friends and family who may accompany you to stay off the course at all times, and be mindful of vehicular traffic around the course. Please cooperate with law enforcement personnel, if asked.
