Race Day Parking
We suggest parking closer to the finish line and The Michelob Ultra Victory Party at Lytle Park. Queen City Square Garage ( 319 E. Fourth St., 45202 ) with entrances on Third, Fourth, Sycamore and Broadway streets and the Broadway Garage ( 310 Broadway St., 45202 ) at the corner of Broadway and Third St. will both offer a $5 flat rate and are a block from Lytle Park. Both garages are approximately .7 miles to the start if you walk north on Broadway to Eggleston towards the casino.
Garages closer to the start line include the Parkhaus Garage ( 1123 Sycamore St., 45202 ) and the surface lot at the intersection of Court and Reedy streets (430 E. Court St., 45202 ). These options are 2-3 blocks from the start area and less than a mile from Lytle Park.
NEW: All road closures will be reflected in real-time using the Waze navigation app. Waze is similar to Google/Apple maps and is a free download. It’s great for getting around on race day for participants and spectators.
Participants in the 4 Miler would be wise to arrive before the start of the Half Marathon at 7:30 a.m. to avoid additional road closures.
