Marathon Madness Transportation and Parking
RACE MORNING PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION
OPTION #1: Buy a $5.00 shuttle pass and park at the finish (UNCW) and take a shuttle to the start. If you did not pre-order a shuttle pass, you can purchase one at the marathon store at the expo. There are 450 shuttle passes left. We will have security at the shuttle pickup to ensure you have bought a pass. Shuttles run from 4:45am to 6:20am. The last shuttle will leave UNCW at 6:20, so be sure you are there as early as possible so we can fill the shuttles to capacity. Again you must have your shuttle wrist band on that you will receive at the expo.
OPTION #2: Park at the start. Wrightsville Beach will have parking on site. Please see map below of highlighted areas where we will park people. If you use this option, you can take a FREE shuttle from the finish back to the start. There will be waiting times for this shuttle as shuttles will have to negotiate race traffic while going to and from the beach. Shuttles will pickup and drop off at the same locations throughout the day.
OPTION #3 Carpool or get dropped off at the start. If you are not taking the shuttle, this option is the best. Your friends or family can drop you off at the start line area anytime before 6:30am.
The finish line is located at The University of North Carolina at Wilmington Campus.
If you purchase a shuttle online before February 1st, your shuttle will be located on your bib, however DOUBLE CHECK to be sure you get it at packet pickup. If you need to purchase a shuttle but registered after February 1st, you can do so at the expo at the marathon store. This will be first come first served.
