The Bus - How it Works
Here are the details on the Eastern States and Run for the Border shuttle buses.
You can board the bus at the Casino parking lot in Hampton on race morning. The Eastern States 20 Mile buses will start loading a little after 7:00 am. until 9:00 a.m., at which time the last bus will leave for Traip Academy, Kittery, ME. You will be dropped at the Academy, where you can wait inside until the race begins at 11:00. To avoid having to wait to board the bus in Hampton, please arrive early to use one of the early buses.
The Run for the Border Half Marathon Mile buses will also board at the Casino lot, starting at 8:00 a.m. and running until 9:30 a.m. They will transport runners to the start in Rye.
The Casino parking lot is located on Ashworth Avenue, across from the Hampton police station. To get there, take exit #2 off rte. 95, rte 101 east. Take a right at the stop sign on to Ocean Boulevard (rte 1A). Bear right on to Ashworth Avenue to the parking entrance on D Street. Parking in the lost is free.
After the Race:
At the conclusion of both races, at the state line in Salisbury, buses will shuttle you back to the Casino, with a stop at the Ashworth Hotel, where the food and awards will take place, should you be interested in either of those. It's only about a quarter-mile between the Ashworth and the Casino. There will be no buses back to the Start Line, so please park at the Casino for bus service.
