 Parking Information (Very Important):

Registrants, volunteers, and spectators are asked to park in the South College Shopping Center, and utilize the horse farm entrance next to Regions Bank. There will be construction along the main entrance of the Horse Farm Saturday morning that will likely block the driveway into the property. Clear access is available via the north east entrance to the farm. We will have volunteers nearby to assist with guiding you to the race area.

Post Race Rewards Ceremony, Food, Beverages, and Live Entertainment:

We will conduct our awards ceremony, along with food, beverages, and live entertainment at the outdoor pool area at Red Lerille’s Health and Racquet Club, which borders the horse farm to the south west. We suggest participants drive from the South College Shopping Center to Red Lerrille’s after the race, parking in the rear of the parking lot closest to the pool entrance. If you have questions about where to go, please ask a volunteer and we will be happy to assist you.
