Parking and Driving Directions

Please enter Red Rocks Park through Entrance 1 and Entrance 2 if possible as the Denver Police Department will be directing traffic on Hwy 93 at those two entrances. These entrances will direct participants to the Upper North Lot, Lower North Lot and Lower South Lot.

Entrance 3 out of Morrison will also be open and will take participants to the south parking lots, but the Denver Police Department will not be directing traffic here. Please note, we close the roads for the race and they will re-open as participants finish the route and the south roads will be the last to open.

Please plan to arrive no later than 8 a.m. in order to have ample time to park & check-in. Space is limited so please carpool when possible.
