You can have a friend or family member drive you to the starting line on race morning. However, please be advised that shortly before the start of the race, the main roads leading to Forest City (the start) will close to traffic. If your driver stays to watch the start, they will need to follow a somewhat tricky “escape route” to get out of Forest City. See Directions page for more information. Note: about 80% of all runners take one of our buses to the start.
