Each runner will be provided with a tag to attach to personal gear for the bag drop. Please bring your own bag. Runners can retrieve their bag at the finish.
Packet pick-up is at the SISU Foundation headquarters:
It will be 5pm – 9pm on Friday, August 23rd. There will be signs directing you where to go.
Parking is available around the entire 2500 University Ave. building AND in the Memorial Blood Center parking lot just across Franklin Ave. from the Sisu Foundation office building. Look for signs to get to the office.
A shuttle will be available after the race to transport participants from Battle Creek Park to Rice Park. For this reason, we recommend parking in downtown Saint Paul before the race. A map of parking ramps in downtown can be viewed HERE.
There are several good areas along the course for spectating. View St. Paul Urban Trail Marathon Spectating in a larger map
