The 3.1 mile route is on Boston';s DCR Esplanade Pathways. To get to the start/finish line, cross the Silber Way Overpass that goes over Storrow Drive. The footbridge is located behind BU';s dorm The Towers (140 Bay State Rd.) The actual location of the footbridge is at the corner of Silber Way and Back Street. Sign in will be at the other end of that footbridge. The scenic route will follow the Charles River, go out towards the Esplanade and loup back towards BU. There will be refreshments along the way and food waiting for you at the finish line.
