Birnie Bus will shuttle runners from the CONMED parking lot off of French Road to the start line on Burrstone Road. The buses will begin shuttling runners at 5:30 am and end at 6:45.  The 5K race begins at 7:15.

There will also be service back to CONMED from the post race party.

Once again this year, Birine Bus will be offering shuttle service from Syracuse to the Boilemaker start line.
