7:50a- SHUTTLES TO HALF-MARATHON START DEPART

All half-marathon participants should park at the Inlet Parking Lot and take the shuttle buses to your start line at Assateague State Park in the day beach parking lot.  These shuttles will only travel one-way (to the start line prior to the race) and will not make any return trips to the park.  By parking at the Inlet, your vehicle will be waiting for you when you finish the race and you will be able to depart at your leisure. \

PLEASE NOTE: There is no race day parking available at the Assateague State Park day beach lot. Runners may be dropped off at the round-a-bout outside the day beach lot but are required to do so prior to 8:00am so that we can make way for the shuttle bus drop off and the arrival of marathoners.

We will have enough shuttle buses for every one of the half-marathon starters.  ALL SHUTTLE BUSES WILL LEAVE SIMULTANEOUSLY AT 7:50am after the start of the full marathon and just prior to the 5K/8K Start. Please do not miss your bus as there will be no alternate travel plans available.

Shuttles are scheduled to arrive at the half-marathon start line at 8:15am.  Once you arrive, the bathhouse with toilets, and sinks will be open. (We will supplement the bathhouse with additional port-a-pots.) In addition the 5 Tides Restaurant and Retail Shop  will be open offering cooked to order breakfast, premium coffee, snacks and more!
