Directions and Parking
From the south: take the Edens north and get off at the Willow Road East exit. Erickson Woods is on the left as you get off the highway. There is a parking lot at Erickson Woods. If you arrive a little later and there is no parking, there are a number of small side streets on the opposite side of Willow Road about a half block east of the Erickson Woods parking lot. There are also a few strip malls and office complexes with parking lots on the other side of the Edens (west of Erickson Woods).
If you are interested in volunteering at this event, please contact our volunteer coordinator at: anju@expandinglives.org. Volunteers are expected to help set up, facilitate, and clean up the race, from 5:30am to 12:00pm on July 8th. Volunteers will be given a free T-shirt and free breakfast for their help. We welcome volunteers that are not available for the entire time, but the T-shirt and breakfast will not be guaranteed.
