Please try to carpool, since parking will be limited. Please plan to park along Summit Avenue or on one of the side streets leading up to the gym. We will be keeping the gym parking lot vacant in the event we can perform the workouts outside. Please make sure that when you park you observe any Police Emergency Parking signs as we are working with the town to ensure that nobody gets a ticket and the streets remain open enough for Fire Department purposes. The town has also recommended that attendants should park at the Berkeley Heights train station to reduce the risk of a fire department hazard. The train station is only a short walk away, has plenty of spaces, and will ensure that you don’t receive a ticket on the day of the event.
Spectator tickets cost $20. Children & CrossFit 908 members are free.
