Allot plenty of time on the morning of Race Day to park and be ready for our 8am start time!

General Instructions

Our race begins at 8am sharp with staggered start times. We use pace flags to set up the start of the race. Please stand behind the flag that will most reflect your pace for each mile during the race. This will allow for a better experience for all runners.
Parking for ALL runners is at the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA Station parking lot on Apple Valley Road, one block south of Peachtree. Apple Valley Road can be accessed from either Dresden Drive or North Druid Hills Road. It is a short 0.3 mile walk from the parking lot to the race staging area (the back parking lot of Village Place Brookhaven). Please account for the 5 minute walk from the parking lot to the race start.
Please use ONLY the MARTA parking lot for parking. There will be no parking available at Village Place Brookhaven, or the surrounding parking lots or streets for participants in The Bolt. Please leave all of your personal belongings in your car. Volunteers cannot be responsible for providing an area of safe keeping for personal items.

Handicap Parking

Handicap parking is located in the Village Place parking lot directly behind J. Christopher’s. You may only enter at the parking lot at the entrance located directly adjacent to J. Christopher’s. Dresden Drive will be closed from Camille to Ellijay. When you reach the road closure, please indicate to the police officer that you require handicap access, they will direct you from there.
