Don’t want to deal with parking? Take a shuttle on race day! WINN Transportation will offer two separate shuttle pick-up locations: City Stadium and The Diamond. Anyone wishing to take advantage of the shuttle service on race day MUST purchase a wristband at the Expo during packet pick up hours. Wristbands will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are NO shuttle wristbands available for purchase on Race Day. The cost is $5 per person round trip from City Stadium and $8 per person round trip from the Diamond. The shuttle will drop off at Adams and Canal Street.
- Parking spaces are limited at both locations so carpooling is recommended. A wristband on the shuttle bus does not guarantee you a parking spot in the parking lots at either The Diamond or City Stadium. On-street parking is also available at each location.
- Shuttles will run on a continuous loop between 6:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. from each location to the drop off point. To ensure that you have enough time to walk from the drop off point to the start line, please plan to arrive at your shuttle pick up location at least 90 minutes before your wave is scheduled to start. The drop off location is 8 blocks from the 10k start area where waves begin to line up. (View map)
- Each shuttle passenger must have a wristband to board the shuttle at the pick-up locations.
- To expedite the purchase of shuttle wristbands at the expo, cash is recommended, but credit cards are accepted with an additional convenience fee.
Take Lyft to and from the race
Lyft is offering 20% each off two rides on race day for Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k participants! Just use the code RVA10K when requesting your ride. Lyft will be using a designated drop off and pick-up zone near Sydney Park, located at the intersection of N. Morris St., N. Brunswick St., and Floyd Avenue.
Free Bike Valet service offered!
We will once again offer a FREE Bike Valet service. Instead of trying to find parking, ride your bike to the event. Bike Valet service will be available on Laurel Street across from the Altria Theater from 7 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Race Day for registered 10k participants. Participants will be able to check their bike, then drop their bag right next door at the Bag Check using their detachable bag check tag on their bib number.
Arrive early, as these spaces fill quickly, or beat the crowds and pre-purchase your parking spot for $8. The price will go up to $10 on event day. Be sure to follow the given directions to avoid street closures.
