For shuttle/parking related questions, please see 3 attachments for bus route, pick up/drop off logistics. With regards to parking capacity at the Twin Drive In, we have parked close to 900 vehicles in previous years. Given that there is no film viewing happening we are able to maximize available space. Prior to last year, we have not filled the parking facility. Last year, we were just about at capacity. For reference, runner registrations are currently tracking for a total of about 100 fewer than last year. Additionally, we will be offering incentives this year to promote cycling to the start in a bid to reduce vehicle numbers. With regards to volunteer parking. Most involved with start operations will park at the Twin. Some early arrivals will park on the Garza Property immediately to the south of the start.

Comments: Based on the maps, it appears you will need LCSO assistance at the Taft Hill/Poudre River Trail crossing. Please advise if there is another that I missed. You must contact Sheriff Admin staff at 498-5108, 1 month prior to the event to schedule law enforcement support.
