Parking

Parking is very limited at McAllister Park. There are a few parking areas nearby the starting line location at Pavilion 2, but runners should carpool or rideshare if they can to get as close as possible to the race start point.

There will also be youth soccer and little league games during and after our race, so the park will likely be very crowded.

Lost and Found

Lost and found items will be available at the San Antonio Public Library information tent located on the path near the bathrooms. All items not recovered by the end of the event will be discarded.
