Boston Marathon Bus

2015 Boston Marathonbus

Once again, the North Shore Striders will provide transportation for runners officially registered for the Boston Marathon. Two spacious 54-person restroom-equipped buses will deliver marathoners from the North Shore directly to Hopkinton on Monday, April 20, 2015. Please read the bus descriptions carefully as there are important differences. Runners in waves 1 or 2 MUST be on Bus #1.

The cost is $27 per person (+ $2 Paypal service charge) for members of the  Wicked Running Club, which is the same price for members of North Shore Striders. $36 per person (+ $2 Paypal service charge) for all other registered runners in the 2015 Boston Marathon.

There are two buses: NSS #1 Bus (the early bus with me as the concierge) and NSS #2 Bus (the later bus with Anne as the concierge). NSS #1 Bus leaves very early but gets to park directly beside the Athlete’s village in Hopkinton and is the only viable option for Waves 1 and 2 of the Marathon. NSS #2 Bus leaves 1 3/4 hours later, but drops you at the South St Parking lot from which you take an official shuttle bus for athletes to the Athlete’s Village.

Many thanks to our friends from the North Shore Striders who have been offering a safe and warm bus ride to Hopkinton for the past several years!

A Frosty Good Time!

8th Annual Frosty Four Runners

Runners make their way through the streets of Salem in the 8th Annual Wicked Frosty Four. Picture taken by Peter Graves.

730 runners crossed the finish line today at the 8th Annual Wicked Frosty Four. The weather conditions were great for the 1st day of January. There was a light wind coming off the water around the Willows to make this race a frosty good time for all who completed the first race of 2015 in Salem. This was also the first race of the 2015 New England Company Running.

Results from the race can be found at http://coolrunning.com/results/15/ma/Jan1_Eighth_set1.shtml.

Great job to everyone from Wicked Running Club who volunteered today. Many thanks to TR Ramsdell and the entire Wicked Frosty Four Committee for putting together an excellent event. Be sure to Like the Wicked Frosty Four Facebook page for photos, stories and more from the race.

See everyone on 1/1/16!
