However, all participants will park in the lot by the front entrance of Marlowe (the East side of the building) and walk through the building to the gym for pre-race stretching and refreshments. Then, runners will exit on the West side of the building to begin the race. If you pick up your packet on race day or register on race day, please allow enough time to return your items to your vehicle, as there is no gear check, before returning to the start line to begin the race. Volunteers will be on-site directing parking.
