Boston Marathon Bus

Monday, April 16th 2018

 The Harriers will once again be traveling to the Boston Marathon in comfort and style via a Strong luxury motor coach.

 The bus will leave the Riverdale Shops off Route 5 in West Springfield (behind Carrabba's Restaurant, in front of GameStop) on Patriots Day, Monday, April 16th PROMPTLY AT 6:00 a.m. We will make the usual pick up in Palmer at the Big Y Shopping Plaza (1/2 mile left off the Palmer exit of the Mass Turnpike) leaving PROMPTLY AT 6:30 A.M. Please do not be late as we will be unable to wait for you because we must arrive in Hopkinton at a designated time.
     Runners will be able to freely use the bus as headquarters (warm and dry) until the start of the race. The Harrier Bus will stay at the bus area in Athlete's Village until the final wave runners depart.

The bus will then make its way to Boston and, depending on traffic, arrive when first wave runners come in or shortly thereafter.
Bus will park in front of the Revere Hotel at the corner of Stuart and Charles Streets (about 3/4 mi walk from finish)

There will be annoucement on the bus instructing runners where to find the bus in Boston.  


Please note that this bus is for officially registered runners only! 

     The cost is $30 round trip for Harriers and $40 round trip for non club members, a real bargain. And there is no better way to get to the Marathon. 
We are asking for payment up front this year to make things easier for everyone the morning of the race. You can pay in the store or send your payment to the store once you have contacted us and let us know you are going to be riding with us.
If paying by check please make the check out to the Greater Springfield Harriers.
