The Finish Line is about 1 mile north of the start. It is on the flats about 250m past the crest of the Rt 20 finishing climb (i.e. past the intersection of Rt 20 and Balance Rock Road). Spectators can walk from the start, or please park off the main road on either Brook Drive - south of the finish - or Old Town Road - north of the finish.)
The Feed Zone is a few hundred meters before the crest of the finishing hill on Rt 20 / N Hollow Rd (and so about 400 or 500m before the finish line). NO FEEDING OUTSIDE THE FEED ZONE. Neutral water will be supplied (courtesy of Hammer Nutrition) but do not rely on neutral water only - it will be a hot day and with all the riders we may not get everyone. (Please park off the main road on Old Town Road north of the finish.)
We have had complaints from residents about littering. Please respect the area and the race. Please do not jeopardize future races and the racers' enjoyment. DO NOT LITTER - no gel packs, no water-bottles, no nothing except in the feed zone. We will DQ any racer who is caught littering.
We need a total of 74 volunteers on Race Day to successfully run the race. We plan to arrange an of "in kind" benefit for volunteers. Please sign up to volunteer under "Volunteer" on BikeReg or CLICK HERE to fill out a volunteer form and send to us.
Registration and parking are at Berg Field. The race start is at the East Hartland Elementary School. THERE IS NO RACER PARKING AT THE START - Parking is located at Berg (or Burg) Field, on Rt 20 about 0.3 miles south-east of the Rt 20/Rt 179 intersection. We have coordinated with the town to ensure that there is sufficient parking at Berg field.
Spectators can walk from the start, or please park off the main road on either Brook Drive - south of the finish - or Old Town Road - north of the finish.)
