Want to camp locally on race weekend? Check out local campgrounds and their distance from Ada: West Michigan Camp Grounds. Note: There are no parking lots near the race site that we are aware of that allow RVs to park overnight.


The parking areas and shuttle service routes are outlined here: Parking & Shuttle (pdf)

Shuttles will be running every 10 minutes and are free. Equipment is not allowed on the shuttles. Athletes can drop off their gear at the Athlete Drop-off shown on the map where it will be watched by volunteers, then park their vehicle, then return to that area by shuttle. Or athletes and their gear can be dropped off by their spectators at the Athlete Drop-off area and make their way to transition from there.
