Race Day Parking

The Surfer’s Path 10k/5k courses are designed to maximize coastal views and offer optimal turn around locations. To accomplish this, the start and finish areas are set in two locations, less than a mile apart. We recommend parking mid-way between the start and finish and enjoy a short pre-event warm up and post event warm down. There is plenty of free, on-street parking between the start and finish areas.

If you are planning to be dropped off near the start line, drivers can continue to Capitola Village parking lots above Capitola Village and the Finish. Access to Beach and Village Parking Lots 1 & 2 (Upper and Lower) is on Capitola Avenue, Bay Avenue and Monterey Avenue. Parking costs for these lots is $0.50 an hour and you can pay for up to 12 hours.

There is NO PARKING in business lots located along 41st Ave between Melton Street and Court Drive, and on Portola Drive, between 36th Ave and Adriene Way. Vehicles will be subject to posted parking restrictions at these locations.
