To all Harriers,

     The online voting for next year's road race grand prix ends tomorrow December 8th at 11:59 pm.   We encourage all current USATF New England members to vote, in particular please vote for the only Western Mass race, the Five College realtors 10 mile classic in Amherst on February 28th.          Pete Stasz

December 1, 2015

Online voting for the USATF New England 2016 Grand Prix Road Race series by USATF members (age 18 and older) is open December 1 through December 8, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. Please review the Bid Comparison Sheet to read more about the outstanding races which are bidding for next yearís Grand Prix. Each bidderís full application is also available for viewing. While on the website, please utilize the 2016 Selection Worksheet, as voting is by choosing individual races from groupings by distances this year.

The Worksheet will enable voters to see all races and the date conflicts with other bidding races on one form as well as the important balloting rules. Please use this as a guide while using the online ballot. Date conflict rules must be followed when voting or the voterís ballot will not be counted. Current USATF membership is required and members (must be at least age 18) can vote only once.


please click the Snowstorm Classic link to the left for more info.

WHERE: Monkey House (located at Trafton Rd gate).
Note: The Trafton Rd gate will ONLY be open on the weeks when the Farmers market is open: It will be open on: Dec 12, Dec 19, Jan 9, Jan 23, Feb 13, and Feb 27.  ALL other weeks the gate will be CLOSED.

STARTING TIME: 9:00AM. (We are starting earlier to lessen the interference with the market which starts at 10:00AM). The first race is a 5K.

PARKING: Please DO NOT park in front of the Monkey House and the adjacent buildings near the Monkey House as the market vendors need the area to unload, and the customers of the market need these parking spaces. There are many other on street parking places within and outside the park. If you utilize the Cyr Arena area, please use the section near the basketball courts so as not to cause an issue with the arena.

There are NO bathroom facilities in the Monkey House. There are porta-potties near the Grandstand and in the parking lot near the snack bar. The bathrooms in the senior center next to the snack bar are also supposed to be opened. We are locked into this arrangement at least through December. If the skate house becomes available after that, we will hopefully go back to the original course. The temporary course we will be using is mostly the same, but it is not CERTIFIED, therefore, any current age records on the original course will still be recognized.
