08 Jan Austin Marathon Partners with SpotHero to Provide Easy Parking
High Five Events is excited to introduce the partnership between the 2017 Austin Marathon® presented by NXP and SpotHero, the nation’s leading parking reservation service. The partnership will further the event’s push to become one of the most technologically advanced road running events in the country by streamlining race weekend parking and saving participants both time and money.
“Our partnership with SpotHero will allow participants to focus on running their best race and give spectators the chance to cheer on their loved ones without having to worry about where to park,” said Stacy Keese, co-owner of High Five Events. “SpotHero eliminates the hassle of parking and this addition strengthens our goal of becoming the most technologically advanced road running event in the country.”
Participants can download the SpotHero’s app and secure their parking in advance for both race day and the Health & Fitness Expo. With SpotHero, drivers know in advance where they are headed and how much they will pay so they don’t need to circle the block looking for parking, hoping to find a spot in time.
“The Austin Marathon is a staple of the Austin community and we look forward to now being able to help participants and spectators find convenient and affordable parking in this vibrant city,” said Kristen Cho, VP of Marketing at SpotHero.
The Austin Marathon will celebrate its 26th year running in the capital of Texas. Austin’s flagship running event annually attracts runners from all 50 states and 20+ countries around the world. With start and finish locations just a few blocks apart, and within walking distance of many downtown hotels and restaurants, the Austin Marathon is the perfect running weekend destination. Participants can still register for the marathon, half marathon, or 5K.
