COURSE:

The Course has been changed a little this year. Please see the Map.

PARKING:

Parking in downtown Madison will be limited—we encourage you to carpool or take the shuttle bus. Parking is available in public lots and a limited number of spaces will be available in select private lots downtown (see list below). Please make sure you park in a legal parking spot and observe all traffic and safety laws.  A shuttle bus will run regularly to and from the Madison Green beginning at 8:30am from 1347 Boston Post Road in Madison (the Cohen’s Bagels lot).  Please note that a portion of Route 1 in downtown Madison will be closed to ensure the safety of our participants. Please plan accordingly and arrive in plenty of time for our 10am start! Strollers, wagons and leashed well behaved pets are allowed in the Family fun walk but not on the 5 Mile course.

Public downtown parking lots including street spaces on Route 1 between Route 79 and Wall Street, and the area behind the Madison Art Cinema

  • New Madison Train Station
  • Old Madison Train Station
  • Clarity Building on Wall Street
  • Madison Beach Club
  • Madison Country Club

 

**Please note that there is no event parking in the Starbucks/CVS lot on the corner of Rt.1 and Rt. 79 as those businesses will be open on Thanksgiving Day**

PACKET PICKUP

Packet pick-up will be held this year at Lenny & Joe’s in Madison, 1301 Boston Post Rd, on Tuesday Nov. 21st and Wednesday Nov. 22nd from 11am-6pm. Stop by and pick up your race bib, timing device and t shirt and avoid the lines on race day! Packets may also be picked up the morning of the race.

CONVENIENT TIMING SYSTEM

We will be using the improved B-tag timing system again this year so please review these instructions to receive an accurate time. The timing device is integrated into the race bib so please make sure:

  •     Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso
  •     Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  •     Race bib is pinned in all four corners
  •     Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

These are single use timing devices so they do not need to be returned at the end of the race. For more information, visit ChronoTrack.


TURKEY TROT DEDICATED TO EVENT DIRECTOR AND FRIEND DAVE PARCELLS

Dave Parcells, two-term Madison Jaycee President passed away suddenly in April of 2007. Dave was a loving and extremely involved father to his two children, a tremendous leader, fundraiser, and an inspiration to everyone he met. He was also the oldest person to swim an English Channel double-crossing, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit local charities. Dave touched and inspired the lives of everyone he knew, and will be deeply missed.
