    Icon Beer The Finish Line!!! And Transportation?

    This is in fact a GREAT question. As you know this an alcoholic event so we will not be shuttling anyone back to their cars. Our recommendation for the day is to have a friend or family member pick you up at the Finish and drop you off at the start OR bus, taxi, walk, bike, crawl to your closest and safest destination. You could even have a combination of all of them! Carpool! Thanks so much for understanding.
