SUGGESTED PARKING FOR 5K ON FRIDAY
Parking will be available at the South End of the Island (trolley service from the Hotel Tybee stop), in the North Beach parking lot. Limited overflow parking will be available at the Tybee Police Station, located on 78 Van Horne Drive.
Trolleys will be running from the YMCA and from the Hotel Tybee to the 5K start at the Lighthouse between 4:00pm and 5:30pm on Friday evening. After the race, the trolleys will be running back and forth from the Lighthouse to Hotel Tybee until 8:30pm.
SUGGESTED PARKING FOR SATURDAY’S EVENTS
- All south lots that are available
- Any side streets on the east side of the island from 15th to 6th Street
- At Hotel Tybee (formerly the Ocean Plaza Hotel)
If you are running the 10K and arrive early enough, the South Beach parking lot on the Strand will be available. If you are traveling south, you can access this parking lot by turning left off of Butler Avenue onto 17th Street.
IF YOU ARE RUNNING THE HALF MARATHON, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND FOR YOU TO BE ON THE ISLAND AND PARKED BEFORE THE 10K START AT 7:00AM; THIS WILL HELP YOU TO AVOID ANY TRAFFIC THAT MAY BE PRESENT WHILE THE 10K RACE IS HAPPENING.
Remember, the farther you park away from the start and finish line, the more time you need to get there. If you want to warm up before you start, parking will be available at the YMCA, but keep in mind that you will be a mile from the start, so make sure to give yourself plenty of time.
