Parking

On Saturday, there is parking available at the Boston Teacher’s Union Lot, which is accessible off Day Blvd. Look for a large blue sign indicating when to turn.

On Sunday, all parking will be at the UMass Boston Lot D. THIS IS NEW FOR 2014! Due to construction and last-minute changes in availability, all parking has to be at Lot D, which is about 1/2 mile from the venue, at the end of Mt Vernon Street. To get to the venue from Lot D, walk or bike down the Harborwalk Trail along the water (see map below). Click here for directions.

It is very easy to get the to the venue from I-93 (Exit 15) or by taking the Red Line to the JFK stop. There is also parking available on some city streets, however, the bike course will be closed to traffic on race morning, so normal traffic patterns will be altered, and “No Parking” signs will be posted. If you park illegally, your car will be towed.

Please Note: Towing from William Day Blvd will begin at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 9th. There will be no parking on William Day Blvd between 10:00 p.m. on Saturday and Noon on Sunday, August 10th.
