    Hey Joe, as far as parking goes, there is cheap parking close to the Ballston Commons Mall ($1 for the first 3 hrs), about a 10ish minute walk from the race area. You can also check out the LAZ parking decks (there are several) in Ballston, but I do not know how much they cost.

    Hi folks, the race website ( has been updated with packet pickup and other important logistical information. Packet pickup will be held this Saturday at the Pacers store in Clarendon from noon until 5pm. You can also pick up your packet at the event on Sunday before the start of the race, but then you will have things to carry around with you, which might be inconvenient. Looking forward to seeing you!

      Thanks Jessica. Do you know anything about parking in that area or if there is parking set aside for the race? I see nothing on the web site.

    It says "fun run" but there are prizes for top runners. So, is there official timing or no?

    • Jessica H.

      Yes, there is official timing. I did not realize the "fun run" was a technical term. My apologies, I will edit that.

    From that day on, I was runnin'.
