Road course street closures start at 8:30am. So we encourage you to arrive early, get dropped off, park at a friend’s house nearby or walk if you live nearby. Street parking will be available on streets neighboring Willow Glen Elementary School, but will fill up early – consider parking blocks away from the course and use the walk to the starting line as a warm-up!

Kids’ Zone & Post-Race Festival

Don’t rush off after the race! Join post-race Kids’ Zone activities, which include balloons, face painting, inflatable slide, games and lots more.

Kids’ Zone and pancake breakfast tickets can be purchased in the Kids’ Zone and around the Festival, so bring a little fundraising cash with you!
