Closest/best parking is in the SIPI Administration parking lot very close to the start, finish, registration and packet pick up.  However, early arrival is encouraged as there is limited parking in that area. Additional and overflow parking will be at the SIPI Sciene and Technology buildinig or near the dorms.  These parking areas will add 5-10 minutes to your arrival at packet pick up, restrooms, and starting line.


Fifthteen (15) minutes prior start of the 5K run, traffic will be re-routed to the north entry gate to the SIPI campus.  This will add 10 minutes to getting to the race start line.  Once the race begins this will be a closed course, therfore your arrival early to the event is highly encouraged even if your coming for the later events.

Please allow plenty of time for parking and packet pick up.  Please note, registration closes 30 minutes prior to each race, NO EXCEPTIONS.  Early Registration is also encouraged.
