There will be parking at the Gould Community Center start/finish area for all participants but carpooling is strongly encouraged. The Gould Community Center is located a half mile east of the State Forest State Park Moose Visitor Center on the south side of Highway 14.
Local Campground Carpools: We will have several volunteers available at the finish line to help shuttle finishers back to campsites and cabins in the local area (Crags, Agnes Yurts, Ranger Lakes, Gould Cabins, North Park Campground or Yurts, Michigan Reservoir, Bockman). So we would like to encourage as many runners as possible to carpool to the start.
Please use our Never Summer 100k Event Facebook page to post messages to ask for a ride or offer a ride if you have space.
Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we have enough interest in carpooling from certain campgrounds, we will help facilitate a schedule, meeting location, and additional volunteer shuttles.
Crew Drop Off: If your crew/family will be dropping you off on race morning and does not need to park for the duration of the race, please have them drop you off at the Community Center Entrance and then park at the Visitor Center .5 miles to the West. There is a short connector trail to walk over to the start from the Visitor Center.
