7. Are there potties available? We will have extra potties by the start line and there are bathrooms by the Lake Parking area at the finish line. There are no restrooms in the parking area so we encourage participants to arrive early to get shuttled to the start line and use the potties.

8. Where is parking and is there a fee? There is a $5 fee per vehicle to enter Lake Louisa State Park. We will send an email closer to the event to ask you to purchase the pass in advance to expedite your entrance to the park. If you have an annual Florida State park pass you will not need to purchase one, please show your pass at the gate. Parking will be down by the finish line by the admin building. Our volunteers will direct you, so please once you enter the gate follow the signs.

9.How do we get from the parking to the start line? We will have shuttles available to take participants from the parking area to the start line, starting at 5:45AM and last shuttle leaving at 7:00AM. Participants can either take the shuttle or do a warm up jog to the top (remember it’s about 2.9 miles from the parking to the top so give yourself plenty of time to get there, uphill). If you are coming with a non participant and you have picked up your packet ahead of time, have them drop you off at the Ranger Station / Start Line and then they can go park and wait for you at the finish line.

10.NEW!!! VIR PARKING: Participants riding together to the race will be allowed to park in our VIR Parking (very important runners 😂) located at the entrance of the park right next to the start line and will be shuttled back to their cars after the race. Last van will leave the finish / parking area by 9am. This will be a first come first serve parking lot to the first 30 cars with at least 3 participants in it. You must have 3 bibs in the car to park in the VIR parking lot.

13.Anything else I need to know about the race?  You are going to have a blast!!!  Lake Louisa State Park is a beautiful place, check out their website so you can plan ahead to stay and enjoy the day.
