A Word About Strollers, Bicycles, Inline Skates and Pets!
Please note: there is limited space for strollers on the ferry. Strollers must fold up and are not allowed during the events. Bicycles and inline skates are not permitted on the island. Pets are not allowed, except for service dogs.
In Case of Inclement Weather...
This is a rain or shine event. However, park officials, ferry transportation providers and race management have the authority to cancel the event for emergency purposes such as, but not limited to, severe inclement weather, to ensure public safety. If such emergency conditions force cancellation, the event entry fee is non-refundable and non-transferable, as funds will have been spent in preparation for the event. However, registrants would be sent a complimentary ferry ticket to travel to the Boston Harbor Islands on their own at a future date; t-shirts would be mailed to applicable event participants; and spectator ferry tickets would be refunded.
