Baggage will be portageded to Council Rock North 10 minutes before the start of the race, to be picked up after you cross the finish line. There is no return bussing service for spectators. Please consider carpooling to alleviate parking congestion, as there is an Athletes Helping Athletes football game at Council Rock North immediately after the ROCK RUN awards presentations
