RACE DAY Parking is located in Lake Lot approximately 0.3 miles from the start line; please see the campus map. You will not be able to get vehicles particularly close to the check-in spot, so it is important that you leave time to park and then reach the pick-up area.  If you do not want to walk back to your car, you should plan to have someone to whom you can give your packet at the start line.

We strongly recommend picking up your packet on Saturday.  We will strictly enforce the 7:30 a.m. start time on race morning, and race-day pick up can cause delays and may cause you to miss the start or the entire race (we will not permit starts after 7:45). PLEASE LEAVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO PARK AND PICK UP YOUR PACKET IF YOU CHOOSE TO PICK-UP YOUR PACKET/ BIB NUMBER ON RACE MORNING.
