      If you registered after our 4/15 t-shirt deadline, we will have a limited number of extra event shirts available at the event. Stop by the registration table after the races to see if we have one for you.

Please arrive early and give yourself plenty of time to park.  Be cautious of runners warming up in and around the park. Please follow the event parking signs to the designated parking lot.  There will be no parking in front of the stadium or behind the stadium--ALL CARS MUST BE PARKED IN THE LOT ACROSS IRONPIGS WAY.
If you must leave early before the finish of the race it is highly recommended, you park along Union Boulevard, otherwise you must wait until the parking attendant can guide you safely around any runners in the park to exit only on Union Boulevard.  For safety reasons, American Parkway and Union Blvd. entrances will be closed by 8:50 am.
