Friday evening’s Pasta Party will serve from 4:00-7:00 p.m., with a delicious catered pasta dinner, live music and a preview of the race. Please try to RSVP to if you plan to come so we can plan accordingly. The meal is included for runners and just $10 for others.

Saturday’s Race Day Parking
The parking area is the Shiprock High School parking lot, with overflow in the dirt field between the high school and Dine’ College. There will be volunteers helping you park. All races will finish at Dine’ College, just a short walk from the parking area.
From Farmington hotels – drive west on Hwy 64, approximately 30 miles. Once in Shiprock, continue straight through a stoplight (near Wells Fargo and church), across the San Juan River and to the second stoplight (near gas stations and City Market). Take a right there, onto Hwy 64 and travel 1⁄4 mile – you will see the marathon signage and the parking area on your left.
