2023 Spectators Guide

2024 Spectator’s Guide coming in Late April!

Our volunteers are gathering info for the 2024 Spectator’s Guide, which we expect to publish near the end of April.

We’ll send you an email when the new Spectator’s Guide is available if you join the Spectator mailing list.

Until then, the 2023 Spectator’s guide is the best estimate of how this year’s race will go. So far we expect only minor changes impacting spectator logistics.

  2. Canton Waterfront Park: Right on the harbor, you can drive there with these directions from Google Maps.
  3. Patterson Park: A bit further into the city, but not too hard to get to. Get directions from Google Maps.
