Race-Day Parking

For the Saturday 5K and Kids races – free parking is available in the Seven Presidents Park lot – first come / first served.  If that lot fills, then there are street parking and other lots in the area.

For Sunday – PURCHASE PARKING TICKETS as you register

Start area parking
Parking on race day near the start line of our full marathon, half marathon and half marathon relay (which all begin inside the gates to Monmouth Park) is in lots directly across the street from the venue. The fee to park in the designated locations is $5 for the entire day. Tickets are available for purchase online and must be verified at the expo on Friday and Saturday.  There will be accessible spaces marked per ADA, please have your current handicap sticker visible to use these spaces.

Parking tickets/fees are due when leaving the lots on race day. The start area parking lots open at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 30 (race day morning). We recommend arriving at least 90 minutes prior to your race start.

Finish area parking
We offer limited guaranteed parking on Sunday, April 30 at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park in Long Branch (about .25 miles from the finish line). This parking is most convenient for spectators, not athletes needing access to the start line, as there are NO SHUTTLES running from this lot on race morning. Tickets must be pre-purchased online for $15 and will sell out as space is limited.  Tickets must be presented upon entering into the lot.

** If you completed your registration without purchasing a parking ticket and now want to add that, follow this link to the purchase form.
