PARKING: Do NOT park your car along the race route, which includes Virginia avenue from Ponce Place to Barnett, Virginia Circle, Barnett, Greenwood, Ponce de Leon Place etc… Signs will indicate NO PARKING. Parked cars along the route will only make the race more difficult for runners. Inman Middle School, at the corner of Ponce de Leon Place and Virginia Avenue, has a surface lot on Virginia which is available to us for the race. There is also a small lot behind Inman Middle School on Clemont, that is accessible from Ponce De Leon Place. The YWCA of Greater Atlanta at North Highland and Adair also has a surface parking lot.
Street parking is available on non-race route streets. Please be mindful of residential driveways and no parking signs when you are choosing a location to park.
