Race Day Parking
If you drive a Subaru, Williams Subaru of Charlotte will have a VIP lot near the start line. If not, we’d first suggest light rail, biking or carpooling to Truist Field to be as sustainable as possible. Next, please remember that street parking (not deck or lot parking) in uptown is free on the weekends. Lastly, there are many paid parking decks surrounding Truist Field and we’d suggest the Legacy Union deck as the most efficient.
Pay ahead to make race day as efficient as possible!
Weather Contingency Plan
In the event of inclement weather prior to 8:00 am, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 30 minutes. If a delay of more than 30 minutes is necessary and the weather conditions continue to be unsafe for the run, the event will be canceled for all participants.
Athletes will be notified of event changes via email and social media.
