Parking & Shuttles

Parking is NOT available at any parking lot adjacent to the Start/Finish Area. GORE-TEX® 50 Mile participants on Saturday and and 5K participants on Sunday will be allowed to park within Fort Barry. Shuttles will be provided for all participants and spectators to and from the event.
 
For GORE-TEX
® 50 Mile and 5K runners, it is important to note that while some parking is available, it is very limited and may be unable to accommodate all participants. To guarantee a timely arrival at the start line, it is suggested that participants who are able to utilize one of the shuttle options take advantage of them.

RIDESHARE OPPORTUNITIES

Why not carpool to this year’s Endurance Challenge event? Reduce the strain on available parking needs, and more importantly, the impact on the environment.

Pickup Pal is but one resource for connecting with fellow Endurance Challenge attendees to arrange a 
rideshare. Join The North Face Endurance Challenge Rideshare PickupPal Group to start sharing rides to our events. Let's do our part in saving the environment. 

It is very easy to get going:

2) Sign up for a free PickupPal account and follow the instructions

Crew Shuttles
