Can another runner pick up my packet for me?

  • Yes! All they need is a copy of your ID (phone photo works, too).

What if I can’t make it to packet pick-up at all? It is HIGHLY recommended to pick up your packet on Friday. However, for an additional $5 there will be race day packet pick-up at the start line starting at 5:45 a.m.

If you are picking up on race day PLEASE arrive one hour prior to your start time. Race morning packet pickup will close 15 minutes before each race.

If you DID NOT purchase race day packet pickup and need to, please bring $5 cash with you to the start line.

Parking & Shuttles

There will be no parking at the race venue! Due to the small size of the expo area and the intimate nature of this race, all runners must use one of the free parking lots and shuttles. Parking areas are first-come, first-served. Please remember to build in some time to park and shuttle to the venue. We don’t want you to feel rushed on race morning!

We highly recommend carpooling to reduce traffic and make parking more efficient. Please note that all parking and shuttle drop off locations are still a 5-10 minute walk to the venue.

 

Road Closures:

The road to the parking area at Pt. Vincent Interpretive Center (P1) will close at 6:30 am.

Those looking to get dropped should go to the Pt. Vincent Interpretive Center, 31501 Palos Verdes Dr. W. (Parking Area 1 on the map above)
