Race Day Parking
We suggest parking closer to the finish line and the Michelob Ultra Victory Party at Sawyer Point. Surface lots on Eggleston Ave. will be closest to the finish line in Sawyer Point. These lots are approximately .7 miles to the start if you walk north on Eggleston towards the casino. The Sawyer Point parking lot on the south side of Riverside Dr./E. Pete Rose Way will not be open for parking on race day.
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 the finish area.
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.
On race morning, eastbound Reading Rd. will be closed from Eggleston Ave. to the valet entrance of the casino. Please note that Court St. from Reedy St. to Eggleston Ave. will not be open around the casino on race morning.
