There is no parking or drop off at the SLO High Start Line.

SHUTTLES ARE SOLD OUT - You can get dropped off near the start area and walk in. There are also public transportation options through the City of SLO. Click here for more information.

To make it convenient for our athletes, we have Marathon and Half Marathon Shuttle Buses sponsored by Silverado Stage Lines on race day. Using the shuttle is easy and is the best way to ensure you get to the start line on time! Participants wanting to utilize the shuttle service, must purchase a wristband. Shuttle wristbands are available for purchase for $10 during the online registration process. Wristbands can also be purchased at the SLO Life Expo Tent on Friday and Saturday for $15 each. Bus seating is limited and late purchase wristbands may be sold out.

Anyone not taking advantage of the shuttle buses will need to be dropped off near SLO High School and walk to the start line holding area. All streets around the start area will be closed to through traffic starting at 3:00 a.m.

All SHUTTLE BUSES WILL LEAVE FROM THE MADONNA MEADOWS PARKING AREA. We CANNOT GUARANTEE you will make it to the Start Line at SLO High if you are late arriving, parking or boarding the shuttles.
