Click Extra Tickets in the top toolbar to purchase discounted Friends & Family Tickets, and click Lodging to find a comfy place to stay during your visit. Only runners are allowed in the park during the race, but the start/finish line is an excellent cheering location. Spectators also can cheer at other locations along the course.
