The race will be held at Unity Park, in Turners Falls, just across the bridge from Route 2, which also provides easy access from I-91.

Getting to the Race

  • Those coming from I-91 will want to use Rt. 2 East, and then take the Gill Montague Bridge south into Turners Falls. If you are racing, the check-in point is the second corner from the bridge, turn left onto 2nd Street and drive the two blocks till its end. Spectators should find available street parking everywhere else.
  • Those coming from the east will take Rt. 2 west and follow the directions above. Going home should take Millers Falls Road east to Montague City and grab Rt 2 from there.
  • Those coming from Greenfield can take the white bridge near Stop & Shop.

Parking for spectators

Spectators will be able to park on any side street that has valid parking. Please do not park in driveways or at fire hydrants. This is a neighborhood, just like yours. Be respectful.
