The Shuttle Bus Stop at the Finish will be directly across from the Finish area, across the A1A street at the intersection of Harbor Drive & A1A, by the Bahia Cabana Hotel, 3001 Harbor Dr, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316. The Start Area Bus stop will be at the back of the Start Line corral, at the intersection of SW 2nd Street & SW 7th Avenue of the Arts.
There is plenty of Parking Capacity near the Start Area! We STRONGLY recommend that people arrive by 4:30am to park! There will be some congestion as thousands of cars will be travelling to the area! Please…please, give yourself enough time to park so you are not rushed on race morning. The parking fees will be around $10 at the Start Area.
If you wish to park near the Finish Line on race morning, please arrive as close to 4:30am as possible in order to provide adequate time to get to the Start via the Shuttle Bus. After the race the Shuttle buses will be waiting by the Bahia Cabana Hotel (right by the Finish Area) to take runners back to the Start Line area.
PARTICIPATION PERKS & AWARDS
All participants will receive a dri-fit shirt as well as a finisher medal. Awards will be given out to top three participants based on chip time for each age group category for both male and females.
