Parking around Winnequah Park will be limited because of the number of streets that are part of the marathon course. There will be some parking near the start and finish and in surrounding neighborhoods but it is recommended that you use our free Park & Ride Shuttles. The Park & Ride location will be announced soon. Buses will pick-up participants and drive them to the starting line every 15 minutes beginning 1 1/2 hours before the start of the marathon. Participants will be able to catch free shuttles back to their cars from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm.
