Race Day

Parking & Transportation

Parking at OVal Beach

Parking is available but limited at Oval Beach. Our recommendation is to carpool with other runners or have friends/ family members drop you off. Mt Baldhead Challenge volunteers will direct you to parking lots designated for the race when you arrive. Parking is not permitted on Perryman St.
Plan to arrive early to avoid traffic leading into Oval Beach. We recommend arriving around 8:00 AM to allow time to park and warm up!

Post Race Transportation

The Interurban will provide transportation to drive runners from the finish line and post-race party at Coghlin Park back to Oval Beach. The shuttle will run roughly every 15 minutes from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm for free.

After 1:30 pm, runners will need to call the Interurban themselves at 269-857-1418. Cost is $1. Ubers & Lyfts are limited; local cab companies are also recommended.

Parking in Town

Parking on the street in downtown Saugatuck is always in high demand. The public lot adjacent to the Saugatuck Center for the Arts is an option for parking close to the finish line and will fill early. Parking is also available at Saugatuck High School.


Celebrate your huge achievement with other runners after you cross the finish line! We will be celebrating with music, lawn games, refreshments provided by Saugatuck Brewing Company and Modales Wines, and plenty of photo opps. Come high-five other runners and stay for a beermosa, bloody mary, glass of wine or that perfect post-race Insta!

All runners will receive a free drink ticket with their bib. 21+. Please bring valid photo ID.
