Parking on Friday - Packet Pickup
Because Nolte is a Washington State Park, a Discover Pass is required to park in their parking lot. If you plan to come to the park on Friday and park in the lot, you will need to display an annual Discover Pass or purchase a one-day pass at the park for $10. More about Discover Passes Here.
Parking on Race Day
Option 1: Parking at Nolte State Park: Half Distance athletes can purchase a parking spot at Nolte for $15 as part of your online registration. These 74 spots are the only spots available to athletes at the park. You will not need to provide a Discover Pass. They are sold to the first 74 athletes who opt to buy one. If at a later time, you won't be using your pass after all, please notify email@example.com and we'll issue you a full refund for the pass and release that spot to another athlete. A DISCOVER PASS IS NOT NEEDED IF YOU PURCHASE THIS PASS
PLEASE NOTE - Absolutely no one will be permitted to drive in or out of the parking lot starting at 8:00AM until the last bike has returned which we expect at around 2:30PM.
Option 2: Race Day Drop Off- drop offs can be made at 30000 SE 370th St, Cumberland, WA, which is one block south of the park. Head to the bend in the road and drop off just past the bend. There is a short trail that leads into the park. Please do not block the street for the shuttle bus.
Option 3: Parking will also be available at the Cumberland Fire Station - about 1.5 miles away - and a shuttle bus will be running throughout the day taking athletes, spectators, and volunteers to and from the park. To improve the flow of athletes to and from the park, we highly suggest that athletes bring their gear in a backpack and ride the 1.5 miles between the race venue and parking lot. While you can put your bike on the shuttle if necessary, the shuttle is best for spectators or athletes without a bike. The first shuttle will begin loading about 6:00 AM at the Fire Station. Bikes are allowed on the shuttle..
