Important: Summer Series #5 Park Pass

We’re gearing up for our fifth and final Summer Series race on August 12 at South Mountain Park and have one housekeeping note.  As in past years, South Mountain Park Rangers require all vehicles to display a pass to enter the park.  Please take a moment to print and save this year’s pass or have it ready to display on your smart phone when you enter the park.

There is only one entrance to South Mountain Park so it is important to have the park pass ready and visible to help avoid traffic delays.  We recommend you plan to arrive at the park no later than 5:45 a.m.  The race begins at 6:30 a.m.

Your final race instructions will be sent next week.  If you have any questions before then, please feel free to send us an e-mail!

Happy Running!
