(This is also a year-long Grand Prix race). Packet pick-up and late registration is from 5:15 – 6:00 a.m. The race starts at 6:30 a.m.
More than 8,000 parking spaces are available: Parking Map
Marina Heights Garage, 33 E Rio Salado. The first 2 hours are free. Look for our sign on Rio Salado. Ash Street Garage (approximately 0.6 mile from start) is free on weekends. Tempe parking meters are free on Sundays.
Substantial construction is on-going along Tempe Town Lake. There is no longer a paved lot for the Tempe Center for the Arts so please do not plan on that lot for your parking.
Choice of Summer Series race t-shirt or tank
Shirts are free when you purchase the whole race series by May 3! They are also available for purchase with individual races at any time throughout the series. Please consider your size carefully – some runners find they want a larger size than originally anticipated, and swaps cannot be done onsite. Sizes range from women’s extra small up to men’s XX-large, and can be ordered while registering.
