5K Directions & Parking
Please note that Stanley Park has limited parking. We will have the main lot (Ceperley Lot) near the finish area closed to accommodate medical facilities, baggage check, and the finish line. If driving, we recommend you park near the start line (off Pipeline Road) in the Rose Garden parking lot. We will be operating free shuttle buses from the finish area/party site and back to the Start Line, running from 7:00am until 11:30am.
Ride your bike to the event and The Bicycle Valet will hook you up with free, safe valet bicycle parking, located at the 5K start line and post-race area.
5K runners should be at the start line before 7:30am. Note that there is no entrance to the park from Beach Ave. This is the route that the 21K runners are finishing on and the road will be closed all morning, so please park at the Miniature Railway (map), car pool, or take public transit (The 19-Stanley Park/Metrotown bus arrives directly to the 5K start). The 5K course will be open until 9:30am, giving ample time (1.25 hours) for a walker.
