The Parking Gist – Sunday 2/3

Revised 2/3, 8am

On Sunday, racers, event participants, and spectators coming to Theodore Wirth Park should park at the Mortenson Construction Lots (700 Meadow Lane and 4100 Olson Memorial Highway, Golden Valley). Individuals may either walk to and from Theodore Wirth Park (a short walk) or take our Mortenson – Trailhead Shuttle (operating 10am-5pm). There is no participant or spectator parking at Theodore Wirth Park.

Theodore Wirth Parkway will be closed from 10am until 2pm to participants and spectators, admitting only staff and volunteers. 

Given this road closure, Skate Marathon participants should be sure to leave time to walk from Mortenson to the Trailhead, as the shuttle will begin operation just as your race begins. Alternatively skate marathon participants may be dropped off in the Theo Wirth Chalet Parking Lot prior to 10am.

There is no shuttle bus transportation for bikes or dogs. Skijorers have been sent a pass for parking at Theodore Wirth with their dogs.
