Transportation & Parking
Satellite Parking & Shuttles
This is a point-to-point race. Please try to carpool and arrive EARLY! All parking spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please do not park on the sides of the roads, as this will create gridlock for everyone else trying to get to the race. Three satellite parking locations are available for the convenience of runners and spectators, and shuttle buses will transport runners to the start on race morning (6:00am – 7:15am). At the end of the race, shuttle buses will transport RUNNERS AND SPECTATORS back to the Sprague Fields Start Area lots or Satellite Parking locations (see below) to retrieve your car. Shuttle buses will operate from 9:00am – 11:00am. You MUST leave by 11:00am to catch a shuttle back to the parking lots. There are no shuttles from the Start line to the Finish line.
There is no parking for runners at the finish at Fort Williams. Fort Williams parking is restricted to sponsors, press, volunteers, staff, and a limited number of spectators. Some of you may want to be dropped off at the start by a family member or friend who will then want to park at Fort Williams. This is possible only if they arrive at Fort Williams prior to 7:30am and if spectator parking is still available. No parking after 7:30am.
Please check back as this information may change closer to race date.
Pre-Race: From both satellite locations: 6:00am – 7:15am
Post-Race: To both satellite locations and start parking: 9:00am – 11:00am
Complimentary Valet Bicycle Parking
SHUTTLE TO START IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR RUNNERS VALETING A BIKE.
Bicycle to the TD Beach to Beacon 10K and keep Maine green! Complimentary valet bicycle parking will be provided at Fort Williams, with shuttle service to the starting line (Only available for those participants who RSVPed for the Bike Valet). After the race, just pick up your bike at the Finish and pedal home immediately, no waiting for a shuttle! Bicycle parking is provided by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, in a secure area, so no lock is required. This year, we’re opening up Valet Bicycle Parking to spectators and volunteers as well! So whether you plan to run, volunteer or cheer on a loved one, consider biking to the race! And did we mention it’s free? Be green and get started sooner on the rest of your day! There is no gear check at the Bike Valet. Please do not bring a gear bag with you.
The valet bicycle parking area will be open from 5:30am-10:45am.
