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.
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.
