DIRECTIONS / PARKING
Parking is available (limited) for athletes at the US Airways parking garage on Saturday. Parking on Sunday in the US Airways building is FREE! Once the garage is full you will need to park on city streets OR at other parking logs near Rio Salado and Mill Avenue.
Click here for local Tempe hotel options. These rates are better than anything you'll find on Travelocity, etc., thanks to great support from the Tempe Tourism Office.
Can't race but would like to see what it is all about? Want to get involved in the community and possibly earn some cash for your favorite charity? Contact our volunteer coordinator for more details on how you can get involved! I want to volunteer, click here.

The race can be altered, postponed or cancelled with no refunds due to weather, natural disturbances, police activity, acts/threats of terrorism, or other reasons beyond our reasonable control. In the event a race is cancelled or altered due to any of the above, there will be absolutely no refunds, credits or transfers.
