SUNDAY PARKING

Best parking lots inside Eisenhower Park are  Fields 6, 6a & 2. Please note all these lots are located inside the park off of Park Blvd. which CLOSES at the Hempstead Turnpike entrance at 6 am. The Merrick Ave./Stewart Ave. entrance will close at 6:30 am. 

The challenge is if entering Park Blvd. at the Merrick Ave./Stewart Ave. entrance, you must come from North of Stewart Ave. (example Old County Road), as Merrick Ave,. & Hempstead Turnpike will start to experience closings as we need to set up all the traffic barrels, cones, and barricades for the race.

HERE IS A TIP ON HOW BEST TO AVOID CHALLENGES: ARRIVE BEFORE 6 AM!

  • Arriving before 6 am means you don't need to worry about road closures.
  • You can park in ANY lot in Eisenhower Park (except Field #5).
  • You will have ZERO STRESS race morning!
  • There will be NO lines for the PortoJohns!
  • You will be relaxed and stress-free before race start. 

At 6:30 am, we will need to close Park Blvd. so we can set up the start lines and allow athletes to warm up on the road, etc. If you arrive late, you will need to park in the off-site parking. Off-site parking is located at the RXR Plaza buildings, 625 RXR Plaza, Uniondale, NY 11553. It is one mile from the race start and finish lines. Shuttle Bus service will be provided by Guardian Buses. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD, and allow yourself PLENTY of time race morning!
