This a point-to-point race. While the finish line takes place at the Palace Saloon, parking, and the race start are at the James Messer Sports Complex.
Program your GPS to 2800 Jackson Bluff Rd. for the Start and for Public Parking (free) at Messer Field.
THERE IS NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION. You must register online before midnight on Friday, April 22, or in person at the Wednesday packet pick-up. Race bibs and shirts that are preordered online are available for race day morning pickup beginning at 6:30 am at the start line location.
Early, in-person registration/ early packet pickup will be at Lululemon, Midtown, in the Whole Foods shopping center, on Wednesday, April 20, from 4:00 to 7 p.m. At that time, you can register via paper registration, and pre-registered runners may pick up their race number and shirt (if ordered).
Be mindful that race shirts are ordered about 10 days in advance. We always order a few extra shirts for volunteers and last-minute runners but register early to guarantee that your preferred shirt size will be available.
Race start and free parking is a Messer Field, corner of Jackson Bluff Rd. and Dupree St. Water/Gatorade at the start, at 1.2 miles, and at the finish.
Race starts promptly at 8:00 a.m.

Team registration deadline is Wednesday, April 20, at the close of early packet pick-up. Ideally, this needs to be the last opportunity to change a team roster…. but we can be somewhat flexible with that deadline…with enough notice to enter the team into the database.
The other great benefit of running this local race is contributing to a couple of great charities. We are supporting the Parkinson's Foundation Rock Steady Boxing program and Javacya Arts Conservatory. Please donate generously.
The 47th Annual Palace Saloon 5K is sponsored by Gulf Winds Track Club, a completely non-profit, volunteer-led organization. All proceeds from the races support dozens of charitable organizations in our community.
