The hotels offer shuttle service to and from the Raleigh-Durham Airport. Call the hotel when you get your bags for information regarding the airport/hotel shuttle. They will also offer limited shuttle service to and from Race Headquarters at Camp Lapihio. The shuttle service to Race Headquarters should be discussed with the hotel; Race Management has no control over these shuttles. The shuttle to the Park will be limited to a specific time on Friday afternoon and again on Saturday morning. No other Race shuttle service is part of the Race's agreement with the hotels.
The hotels will maintain a ride matching service for their Race guest at the front desk. Runners either willing to provide a ride for a fellow runner or runners needing a ride to the Park should leave their name and room number on the list at the front desk.
