Back by popular demand! Shuttle buses from the finish to the start line will be available from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Buses will pick participants up on SE Main Street and SE 3rd Street after the race and drop off in front of the Target Center.

Please arrive early to allow ample time to find parking and walk to the race site due to downtown congestion.
