Friends and family can watch their loved ones at the Starting Line at the Parque del Tercer Milenio’s rotunda next to the Sixto Escobar Stadium. The 2017 Puerto Rico Half Marathon® & 10K will start at 6:00am SHARP (subject to unforeseen conditions, Police clearance will be required prior to starting the race to safeguard our athletes), thus arrive at least one hour prior to the start to allow enough time for road closure detours, parking, and heading to the starting line.
Parking area will be offered by the Puerto Rico Convention Center (PRCC) for a $8.00 flat fee. You may park your vehicles at the Center’s designated parking lot accessible via either Calle Lindbergh or Convention Center Boulevard. Just follow the friendly parking administrators with flash-lights and signs. Shuttle services from PRCC starts at 4:30AM until 5:30AM, taking athletes to the Starting Line area next to the Sixto Escobar Stadium.
