Beware The Race-Day Shuttles
Because the starting line in the small town of Hopkinton is 26 miles west of the finish line on Boylston Street, the event includes an extensive shuttle program from downtown to the start. Along with proper meal planning and adjusting you race morning routine, you also need to temper your race day excitement because the shuttles leave hours in advance of the start of the race.
Yes, focus is required race morning, but also plan for a 40-50-minute bus ride and consider bringing music, a warm layer of clothes, a book, fluids and even a small meal.
