Awards for Runners that BEAT THE TRAIN

Family members of runners may park at University Station and ride the NFTA train down to the finish line. There are 2 options for rides; you may ride the train down that the runners are racing (that ride will be approx 50 mins-1 hour) or you may catch the train just before the "racing train" leaves, that will get you to the finish line in about 20 minutes. Participants will be able to ride the train back to University Station for your car anytime that day for free.
RELAY runners can catch the train at the Delevan Station relay point to the finish line. There is a parking area there also, if 2nd leg relay runners drive to relay point.
