SUGGESTED PARKING FOR saturday's events

  • all south lots that are available
  • any side streets on the east side of the island from 15th to 6th Street
  • at the Ocean Plaza Hotel 

If you are running the 10K and arrive early enough, the south beach parking lot on the Strand will be available. To access this parking lot traveling south, turn left off of Butler Ave. onto 17th Street. 

If you are running the half marathon, we strongly recommend for you to be on the island and parked before the 10K start at 7:00am; this will help you to avoid any traffic that may be present while the 10k race is happening.    

Remember the farther you park away from the start and finish line the more time you need to get there. If you want to warm-up before you start, parking will be available at the YMCA, but remember you are a mile from the start, give yourself plenty of time.
