Getting to Wirth, Parking, Dropoffs and Bags

Bike (the best!): We encourage participants and spectators to bike, walk, or jog on race morning. There will be extra bike racks at the Trailhead (parking lot) where you can lock your bike.

Take the bus(!): The Number 7 route comes to Wirth Park! Check for info and route planning.

Dropoffs: Pull-through drop-offs may be done in the north Trailhead parking lot, though the full turnaround itself will be closed.


Lots of parking at Mortenson Parking Lot! We expect the Trailhead lot to fill quickly. It is a short walk or jog from the Mortenson parking lot to the start area. Please do not park in any reserved spaces at Mortenson. The quickest route from the Mortenson parking lot to the Trailhead is north through the Humane Society parking lot/driveway through the woods to the Luce Line paved trail (then turn right to get to the Trailhead).

All volunteers will receive race swag and one free beverage or beer (with valid ID). Please e-mail with questions.
