Parking and Shuttles for Race Start
The expo and finish line are in the school bus driveway just east of Harrisburg Elementary School on Smith Street. You can not drive in or park there. There is limited parking at the full marathon start, and there is no parking at the half marathon start. The 5K start is the same as the finish line.

The best parking areas are:
1. Harrisburg High School parking lot on 9th Street (on Friday during the expo, we will be competing with a football game, starting at 7:00, so fill the other areas first).
2. Harrisburg Middle School parking on 6th Street (only on the west side so that you don’t block the 5K course).
3. Gravel lot between school bus parking and Harrisburg Middle School.
4. On city street north of Smith so that you don’t block or congest the race course.

On Friday for the expo, we will be competing with a football game, so if the parking lots fill up, just drive a little farther north in town to find open street parking. Make sure to park correctly, and do not block driveways or fire zones.

On Saturday, parking will be easiest before the full marathon, from about 4:15am to 6:15am. If you are going for the half marathon, go a little early in case the parking lots are full and you have to park on the street (not along the race route).
