Travel and Lodging Information 

If you’re flying in to the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, travel is less than 15 minutes to all of our events in the heart of downtown Birmingham. Most hotel properties in the downtown area run shuttles to their properties from the airport.   Birmingham also offers Taxi service, Uber and Lyft. Our start/finish line is located at Railroad Park, 1600 1st Ave., S., Birmingham, AL  35233 if you want to plan your lodging near all the action.  We currently have a block of rooms with a group rate at the Home2 Suites by Hilton.  It's a unique property as it's located in the same building with the Hilton Garden Inn.  Unfortunately, due to limited rooms in both these properties, we were unable to secure a block/group rate at the Hilton Garden Inn. Book quick because they will sell out.  We'll be offering more hotel information soon. 

PARKING:  If you're driving, we have partnered with the parking app, Clutch! to manage parking on race day. You can reserve and pay for your space in advance, so you don't have to worry about it on race day. Clutch! has spots surrounding the start of the race.  Download the app and reserve a spot as the race date approaches.

Visit the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau for additional lodging, restaurant and attraction information.
