Race Day Parking & Busing
Because REVEL Big Cottonwood is a point-to-point route, we will bus you from the finish line to the start line. The cost of busing is free. You do not need to reserve a spot on the bus. Your bib is your ticket to board a bus.
Due to road closures and participant safety all runners must take the buses the morning of the race. You may not park or be dropped off at the start lines.
All participants will park in the lots and parking garages directly to the south of the finish line. Parking is limited, so please carpool if possible. The best way to arrive is by using I-215 and taking the Union Park Avenue exit south. The best address for parking is 7000S Union Park Avenue, Cottonwood Heights, UT 84047.
Full and half marathon participants will board buses in two separate locations. Full marathon buses will load from the corner of 1300 East and Park Centre Drive near Denny's and will depart between 4:00 and 5:00 AM.
Half marathon buses will load from the NW corner of 1300 East and Fort Union Boulevard across from Maverik. They will depart between 4:30 and 5:30 AM. Please arrive on time and make sure to board the correct bus.
The Aid Stations will be equipped with water, Lemon Lime Powerade, Restrooms, and basic medical supplies. In addition some aid stations will include Gu Energy Gels, fruit, and medical personnel (see aid station map below). **Any personal belongings dropped on the course will be donated to charity.**
The marathon features thirteen (13) on-course Aid Stations to help you along the way. Mile locations for the Marathon Aid Stations are: Mile 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20.5, 21.5, 23.5, 25 along with the Start and Finish Lines.
The half marathon features six (6) Aid Stations to help you along the way. Mile locations for the Half Marathon Aid Station are: Mile 3, 4.5, 6, 8, 10.5, 12 along with the Start and Finish Lines.
Because the canyon and Wasatch Boulevard will be closed to traffic and spectators, we recommend that your family and friends find other good spots along the course to cheer you on. The best places for spectators are along Fort Union Boulevard and at the finish venue. Refer your fan club to the courses tab of the website to plot out their desired locations.
