If you are going to drive, we strongly encourage carpooling as traffic gets quite busy all around downtown race weekend. Parking is available on-site in the event center garage, charges may apply.
We recommend booking convenient and affordable parking in advance through SpotHero, the nation’s leading parking reservation app.
To reserve your parking spot for the Austin Marathon Packet Pick Up & Expo, visit the Palmer Events Center SpotHero Parking Page and book a spot with rates up to 50% off drive-up.
