Race Day Parking

When choosing a location, we strongly recommend parking outside the course route for easier egress after the race. Also, because of the congestion, we suggest you are in your parking spot before the streets close at 6:00 AM.

Road Closures

There will be multiple road closures downtown throughout the weekend and race day as we prepare the course. We strongly recommend early arrival on race day to ensure you don’t experience difficulties with our 6:00 AM closures for the course. To be safe, we suggest you park outside the course perimeter. Plan ahead!
