WE'LL CONTINUE TO KEEP BOSTON'S RUNNING PATHS CLEAR UNTIL SPRING
New Balance and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) are at it again... and in all the right ways. NB & DCR renew their sides as the local snow team that will ensure clear paths for Bostonians in motion.
Runners, joggers and walkers have clear and safe running paths along the Charles River during the 2013-2014 winter season because of this partnership that is now in its fifth consecutive year. The deal is designed to allow bicycle commuters riding to and from downtown, runners training for the 118th Boston Marathon, or those taking a winter walks, to be able to do so without issues of snow building up between now and spring.
From the Museum of Science in Cambridge to the Galen Street Bridge in Watertown, all of the 17+ miles will be plowed within 24 hours of the completion of each storm. The snow removal will be performed by DCR within 24 hours of the completion of each storm and is funded by the giving from NB. The DCR and NB urge runners to continue to use caution because limited salting and sanding can be done due to the fact that the route runs in very close to the natural river bank.
NB will host six events along the running path on Saturday mornings leading up to the Boston Marathon where new products, winter running tips, giveaways and fuel will all be offered. NB will also have inspirational banners along the river to encourage runners to keep moving through the winter chill.
