Parking and Directions
Location and Parking
We are located at River Valley Ranch, 4443 Grave Run Rd. Manchester, MD, 21102. Parking staff will direct you on arrival. Please follow their directions to keep traffic flowing.
- As the River Valley Run grows each year we see an ongoing increase in traffic, so we STRONGLY encourage you to arrive at least an hour before your start time!
- Complementary parking is located in several different fields. While most sections are relatively flat and cars should do fine, if you have an SUV/truck we encourage you to bring it (and carpool!).
- If you park in the North lot, you must exit north on Grave Run. If you park in the South lot, you must exit South. No cars will be allowed on Grave Run road between both lots from 7:00am to 10:00am.
- If parked in Lot A (south lot), you will be unable to leave until 10:00 am.
We strongly encourage carpooling for many reasons:
- it’s cost effective
- it’s environmentally friendly
- this is a very large event with a lot of vehicles entering and exiting. Fewer cars = less traffic. There are several Park-N-Ride's on the way to the Ranch that make excellent locations to meet fellow runners:
