RACE DAY: December 2, 2017
Race Day Parking & Shuttles
Runners should plan to board the shuttles no later than 6:00am so that they have ample time to get to the start line.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING OR DROP OFF AT THE VISITORS CENTER
Once runners are dropped off at the visitor’s center, they’ll pick up their bibs in the parking lot if they need to. Then they’ll walk about 3/4 of a mile to the start line where we’ll have coffee, hot chocolate, and gear check! Runners are free to linger at the Visitors Center, but will need to begin walking to the start line no later than 6:15am.
Once runners have finished the race, they will have about a 1/2 mile cool-down walk to the Visitors Center. There, you’ll find runner recovery, the awards ceremony, and shuttles back to your car.
