Houston has extensive parking in the downtown area. Sam Houston Park, our home base for the race, is on the western edge of down town. There are numerous surface parking lots and garages most of which generally charge a fee for parking. Bring small bills with you if this is your parking choice. Here is a link to an interactive map of parking facilities:
Select Sam Houston Park in the top left corner for the areas closest to the race.
On-street, metered parking is available during the day on most downtown streets. Meters are FREE all day Sunday. DO NOT park in valet zones or commercial zones (marked with red meters or red striping on the street). Please always read the signs before you park!
Arrive early is always good advice as the parking closest to the race fills up early. Street closures in preparation for the race may also complicate reaching the downtown area.
BIKE VALET: Interested in skipping the vehicle traffic, use our free bike valet service. We offer a Bike Valet service for those who wish to commute on two wheels and will safely store the bicycles of participants, as your bib will be your valet ticket. It is staffed and secure.
