Race Day Parking

There are various surface lots, parking ramps, metered-parking and non-metered parking available near the Start/Finish area. Parking fills up quickly on race morning so it’s best to arrive early to find a spot. Plan on walking a few blocks up to 3/4 mile.

 

St. Anthony Falls Parking Ramp is located at University Ave SE & SE 2nd Avenue. There is also a surface lot just east of the ramp. Due to road closure schedules, it is advisable to be in the ramp/lot by 6:00 a.m.

 

Do not leave valuables in your car.

 

If you park in the neighborhoods, please be courteous. Don’t block any driveways and respect private property.
