Getting to the Start Line:

To get to the start line, either get dropped off at the start line or take our free pre-race shuttle from the parking garages at the finish line.  There is no parking at the start line.

Shuttles to the Start Line:

Shuttles to the start line depart from the parking garages at the Finish Line at the Bay St. Mall in Emeryville.  The first shuttle departs at 6:15 am, and the last at 7:45 am.  See the parking map for parking and shuttle bus loading locations.  We recommend that you board a shuttle bus at least 45 minutes prior to your start time, to give you ample time at the start line to prepare for your race. 

Parking:

There is ample parking at the finish line.  There are 500 free parking spaces at the Ikea parking garage that are first-come, first served.  There is also ample parking at the Bay St. Mall, for a small fee.   Arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to park.  The streets around the finish line will be especially busy from 6:30 am to 7:30 am, so get there early to avoid the rush.
