TRANSPORTATION, PARKING, STREET CLOSURE

We highly encourage carpooling or bicycling to the event.  Since the course is point-to-point, parking mid-route is logical.  You'll have a short warm-up walk to the start and an evening stroll after the post-race festivities.  Remember that Midland Avenue will be closed to traffic from Bloomfield Avenue to Watchung Avenue for approximately 4 hours.

Street Closures and Resident Parking:  "No Parking Zones" along the course will be enforced beginning Sunday, August 20th, at a specified time TBA. Please look for "NO Parking " signs in your area for full details.  Neighborhood residents will be notified of street closures along the route a few days prior to the event.  City streets will re-open promptly as the final runners pass through.  The Montclair Police Department will be responsible for closing and re-opening streets.  They will do so in a manner ensuring runner and spectator safety.  Please follow their instructions when approaching streets on the course. Please do NOT attempt to block the race course at any time.

WEATHER POLICY

The Midland Avenue Mile will take place rain or shine.  If cancellation of the event is warranted due to dangerous weather conditions, announcements will be made race day at the race site.  The event will not be canceled in advance.  All decisions regarding cancellation will be made on site, race day.
