Parking is available throughout Hamilton City Centre, including multi-story parking facilities at Centre Place (Bryce Street) and Anglesea Street. On-street parking is also available throughout numerous locations within the City Centre, but please be aware that Victoria Street will be closed on event day.
The City Centre will also be a bit busier than usual, so we would advise all participants who intend to bring a vehicle to arrive early on event day. We'd also recommend using public transport as much as possible, or even better, why not have a nice warm up by walking to the event!
There will be a number of road closures on the day. Click here to see the full list.
We encourage spectators to support their friends, family and colleagues by coming along and viewing participants throughout the course. Watch this space as we will check out some of our favorite spots to cheer on all the runners!
