Where can I park for my event? Will there be a way back to my car?
In the marathon and half marathon you will want to park at Rice-Eccles Stadium ONLY. There will only be one bus pickup location this year due to logistical issues with Day’s of 47′ parade. Those running the 10k will want to park in the areas surrounding Research Park at the University of Utah. 5k runners should park near Wasatch Elementary School. We recommend arriving early to find the best parking locations.
There will be specific shuttle buses taking people back to Research Park and Rice-Eccles Stadium. Those buses are often very full and take a lot of time to return because of traffic and road closures. If you are in a hurry, we recommend having someone pick you up near the park. Walking back to the 10k start is about two miles.
Is there a time limit in the marathon and half marathon?
In accordance with the Salt Lake Police Department, the marathon course will close after six hours. After that, all runners will be directed toward the sidewalk and clean up at the finish line will begin.
