The Greater Springfield Harriers will once again be traveling to the Boston Marathon in comfort and style via a Strong luxury motor coach. As always, West Springfield and Palmer will serve as the runner pick-up and drop-off locations.

Marathoners will be brought directly into the athlete's village in Hopkinton where you will be able to freely use the bus as headquarters (warm and dry) until the start of the race. We will then collect all the tired, but happy, marathoners in Boston and bring them back home.

You don't have to be a Springfield Harrier club member, but you must be an offical entrant in the marathon. The round-trip cost is $40 for Harriers Club Members and $50 non-club members, a real bargain. And there is no better way to get to the marathon!


Pick-up location #1 is at the Riverdale Shops off Route 5 in West Springfield (behind Carrabba's Restaurant, in front of GameStop) leaving PROMPTLY AT 6:00 a.m. The second pick-up is in Palmer at the Big Y Shopping Plaza (1/2 mile left off the Palmer exit of the Mass Turnpike) leaving PROMPTLY AT 6:30 A.M. Please do not be late as we will be unable to wait for you because we must arrive in Hopkinton at a designated time.

Runners will be brought directly into the athlete's village in Hopkinton where you can make use of the bus while you wait. After the final wave of runners depart for their corrals, the bus will quickly travel to Boston to pick up all the tired but happy runners to bring back home.

Our Boston pick-up location will be in front of the W Hotel (Marriott) at 100 Stuart Street.
Note: The Boston pick-up location is subject to last minute change, so be sure to listen for announcement once all runners have boarded in Palmer.
