    Dam to Dam 20K Questions

    My wife and I are running DTD this year for the first time. I see they have shuttle to the start area but to catch that shuttle, we'd have to be downtown very early. Is there a way to drop off at the start area? The website says not to but just curious as to what others have done. I think dropping at the start area could recover more than an hour of time in the morning for us. We are getting a sitter that morning and I don't want the sitter to have to come any earlier than she must.

    Looking forward to the run!

    I've done it and it really is best to take the shuttle to avoid congestion...it's a great race, enjoy your run!

    You can get dropped off on the east side of the dam and just walk over. I have done that in the past. But you have to be dropped off, there is no where to park.

    Cool. Thanks. Right now we are leaning towards riding the shuttle.

    It is difficult to get on a shuttle? With 8000 in the 20K, I would think it might get tight.

    The shuttle is just a bunch of school busses. They usually have them stretching as far as the eye can see, and they constantly loop from the dam to downtown for 2 hrs before.

    This will be d2d #4 for me. I have been dropped off near the damn my previous runs with no issues. My wife just turns around and leaves. There are a few runners out on the course but she has not hit any yet.
