Run for Access Schedule of the Day

Time Description
8:00 am Registration Opens
8:30 am Running begins at different times
11:30 am
Races to all finish up

As we are honoring every runner’s effort, this event is designed so all finish around 11:30 AM. Runners/walkers will estimate the time it will take to finish and back it up from 11:30 AM. Please arrive at the Registration Area a half hour before starting your race. For example: If you think the race will take you 2 hours, you will want to start at 9:30 AM. 

Give yourself plenty of time for parking and walking to Registration. There is parking on Perkins Street (north end of Pond) and on carriage roads near Kelly Circle and side streets. 

If you are getting dropped off, the location is Kelly Circle, left of the Boat House which is at 507 Jamaicaway

The lap is 1.5 mile path. Slower runners and people with physical challenges will stay to the inside. Although we are hoping for competitive and challenging times we ask for people to be reasonable and supportive as they run together. Also note, there will be other people using the path as the pond is open to the public. 

All funds raised go to AccesSportAmerica and our programs reaching 2000 people living with challenges/disabilities striving for higher function.
