2019 GUIDE TO RACE DAY PARKING
TRAVEL & PARKING ARRIVAL TIMES
From 5 am to 6:45 am, all routes to downtown, with the exception of Saginaw Street, will be open to traffic. At 6:45 am all streets around the course are closed. Race Day Packet Pick Up and Late Registration begin at 6:30am. If you’ve already picked up your packet, plan to arrive, park and be ready in your corral by 7:40am to guarantee a spot in your corral.
FREE PARKING & SHUTTLE SERVICES TO AND FROM START AREA/FINISH AREAS
Parking lots in and around the downtown area fill up early. This year we highly recommend using our free and easily accessible parking and shuttle service.
This is how it works: Park your vehicle (free of charge) at Diplomat Pharmacy/ McLaren Medical Testing Lab located at 4400 South Saginaw Street (an easy drive from I-475) Parking is on the southwest corner of Atherton & Saginaw Streets, approximately 2.5 miles from the start/finish. Shuttle buses will transport participants and spectators to Third Street between Stevens and Wallenberg streets, approximately 2-3 blocks from the start/finish. The shuttle service begins at 6 am from Diplomat Pharmacy/McLaren Medical Testing Lab and will run a continuous loop until 3 pm. When you’re ready to leave, go back to Third Street between Stevens and Wallenberg Streets. The last shuttle to Diplomat Pharmacy/ McLaren Medical Testing Lab will depart from Third Street at 3pm.
There will be portable toilets on site - please do not try to go in the building!
If you choose not to use the shuttle service, parking is available in several locations around the downtown area on Crim morning.
- Flint Powers High School, right off I-69, Hammerburg Road Exit: Coming into Flint on Flushing Road/Robert T. Logway, or via I-475, the University of Michigan William White lot offers a substantial number of parking spaces. This lot is located on the corner of Saginaw St. and Robert T. Longway, across from Rally’s.
- Crim participants arriving from the west can find parking In the Carriage Town area, located just west of the Flint River, off of Grand Traverse Street. A footbridge connects that side of the river with the downtown – start line area.
- From the south and I-69, parking is available in the Flint City Hall area, near the corner of Saginaw and Court Street. Additional parking spaces are found scattered throughout the downtown area.
