Where shall I park?
Hogsback Rd. Parking Lot - First come first served on race morning. The parking lot is managed by an attendant and a Police Officer at the corner of Hogsback Rd. and Riverside Dr. Entrance to Hogsback Rd. will only be open until the lot is full.
Mooney's Bay Park Lot - The Mooney's Bay Parking Lot is off Riverside Dr. and it is a metered lot. It may cost about $6 to park for the duration of the event. Bring change!
Recommended Parking Lots - In addition to the above lots, you can park in many of the lots along Brookfield Dr. which meets Riverside Dr. at the Hogsback Rd. corner. These lots are very convenient to the event site (about a 5 minute walk) and are free, but please obey parking/no parking signs.
