We encourage participants to park in the Bonneville Hot Springs parking lot in the morning starting around 6am. There will be shuttles and car pooling from there to the race start at Panther Creek Campground. The last shuttle will leave at 7am for the start. Parking at the finish will not only be more convenient it will eliminate parking problems at the start where there is limited parking.
