Travel and Lodging Information 

Due to our Interstate bridge construction at I 59/20, our start/finish line has moved to Railroad Park. It is 1.3 miles from the Uptown District where our host hotels are located. Our host hotels are located within walking distance to our Expo and Race Packet Pick up.  Please be aware when making your lodging plans.  The Uptown District and our curent host hotels are still an excellent choice for a great weekend! 

If you’re flying in to the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, travel is less than 10 minutes to all of our events in the heart of Birmingham’s City Center and our host hotels, the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel and The Westin Birmingham. Host hotels are also located in Birmingham’s new Uptown District. If you are staying at either hotel, they will provide shuttle service to and from the airport. There is also taxi service available at the airport. Click here for a link to city bus routes. The Sheraton Birmingham and the Westin Birmingham provide special race weekend rates. To learn more about our host properties or to make reservations, please click on their links below. In order to secure the special rate, you must ask for the Mercedes-Benz Marathon Weekend package. This rate will only be offered until 5:00 p.m. on February 1, 2019 or until they are booked so make your reservations early.
