Alternate Parking Location: There is street parking along Crocker Avenue just prior to South Hill Blvd. and a trail entrance on Crocker. It is approximately .8 mile from this entrance to the race staging area so please allow sufficient time to reach the start. We will not delay the race start if you are late. To reach this location, turn onto Crocker Avenue from Mission Street and drive approximately 1 mile (note that it is a steep, winding road). If you are driving southbound on Mission Street, you will make a left turn onto Crocker; if driving northbound on Mission, you will make a right turn onto Crocker.
