Shuttles and Parking
The start and finish of the event are in 2 separate locations approximately 2km apart. You may want to park near the finish and utilize the shuttle service that will take you to the start area. Likewise the shuttle can return you to your vehicle at the start (however you may find it better to enjoy the activities at the finish and not have to shuttle back to the start). Shuttles will loop between The Westin Bayshore and Ceperley Park on race morning. This Shuttle Service is for participants only and a race number must be shown to access the shuttle service. You may not want to rely on the shuttle and find transportation to/from the starting area if possible to avoid delays - we highly recommend green transportation (transit, carpooling, biking or maybe a nice 2k warm-up?).
Parking options are available HERE. A Gear Check and transport system will be in place if needed to transport any additional clothing you have from the starting area to the finish.
Shuttle Times: 7:15am-11:15am (running approximately every 15 minutes from each location)
*We recommend that you are at your shuttle stop 90 minutes before your start time so you can arrive at the start line at least 45-60 minutes before your race start (and you don't want to miss Zumba!)
