EXPECT DELAYS

Please expect traffic delays. If you can avoid traveling by car during peak race hours please do so. If possible, carpool to both reduce road traffic and the amount of vehicles near the start line and post-race party area. Remember there is no designated parking near the finish line and post-race party. The New York State Department of Transportation is in the midst of a massive multi-year arterial project, areas you may have been able to park last year may no longer be available.
