Parking Information

RUNNER PARKING:

4050 Piedmont Parkway
High Point, NC 27265

** Be sure to arrive early! Traffic will be heavy. And roads will be blocked for race route from 8:15 until 10:30 am. **

NOTE:

GPS programs may suggest Wendover Avenue to Piedmont Parkway. Please avoid this route! Piedmont Parkway will be closed starting at 7:30 am, blocking access to parking. We recommend Greensboro residents use I-40 instead. If you do travel via Wendover Avenue, continue all the way to Premier Drive and turn right. Then turn right onto NC-68 N and right onto Piedmont Parkway.

GO FAR RUNNERS:

If you have been training with a school group, your coach will have a meeting spot in the COACHES’ LOT. Ask your coach for details about how to find your group and check-in times. (Most coaches require runners to arrive sometime between 6:45-7:15 am.) It is IMPORTANT TO ARRIVE EARLY. There will be a lot of traffic. Give yourself plenty of time to park and find your group in the Coaches’ Lot. After you check in with your coach, you will have time to enjoy GO FAR Family Festivities.
