This is how it went down last year.
This year we had to redesign the 5K course because some trials were eliminated during the water management work that Park Authorities did in the park. As a result there is less pavement (only 50 yards) and more elevation (210 ft gain). The course is dynamic and challenging. (click here to check it out)
Due to a large number of participants (close to 250 total) parking may be an issue this year. It may already get tight in the morning for 6h and 3h runners. Please plan to arrive early enough in case you need to park at the lower level (near soccer fields) parking lot. It will certainly be a trickier for 5K and 10K runners as well as for 1/2 marathoners. We encourage carpooling and kindly ask locals (since they may be more familiar with the area but everyone may take that route if they wish) to use parking options on the other side of the park: Option 1 - the end of Roberts Ave (there is probably space for 30-40 cars), the distance to the Start/Finish area is around 0.3 miles; Option 2 - Columbia Elementary School on Alpine Dr (probably couple of hundred spots), maybe 1/2 mile walk to the Start/Finish area; Option 3 - Service Road along Columbia Pike opposite to the park entrance (few dozen spots), maybe 1/2 mile walk to the Start/Finish area. You can see that there is at least 250 parking spots at the two parking lots in the park, let's not forget that there are also other park users and there are many that drive to the park on Saturday mornings.
