More Race Day Info:

  • PARKING – The closest pay parking lot to the 5K Start/Finish line is the Lake Calhoun Richfield Road Parking Lot, situated between Lake Calhoun & Lakewood Cemetary. But we suggest parking in the neighborhood close to the Taste of Greece so you’re closest to the after-party (3450 Irving Ave S., Minneapolis)
