Carpool! We really really encourage you to carpool. This is Seattle, after all. All participants must park near the finish line at the Don Armeni Boat Ramp as participants will be shuttled to the start. There is no parking at the start line at Lincoln Park as the shuttles will only run before the race, not afterwards. There is plenty of on-street parking in and around Alki and West Seattle. Remember that the later you arrive, the greater the chance that you will need to walk a little ways to get to the start line. So plan ahead!

Shuttles ONLY run before the race. Participants will be shuttled from the finish line at the Don Armeni Boat Ramp to the start line at Lincoln Park. Shuttles will leave every 10-15 minutes starting at 6:30am.

The shuttle from the finish line to the start line is approximately 15 minutes so please plan accordingly to arrive at the start on time. There is also a 10-15 minute walk from the shuttle drop off zone down to the start line on the waterfront.
