3 Bridges Marathon — Parking and Transportation
Parking and transportation will be smooth and convenient. Trolleys will shuttle you from our parking location and drop you off at the starting line. We appreciate our sponsor, Arkansas Trolley Company.
Regular starters should not attempt to drive down or to park on or at the bottom of River Mountain Road. This area is reserved for race officials, volunteers, and emergency vehicles. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in a ban from future 3 Bridges events.
5:00 a.m. Start Time: Early Starters and Early Spectators
Early starters are responsible for getting to the starting line by 5:00 a.m. Drive down River Mountain Road and park in the spaces near the boat dock area to the left as you arrive at the bottom of the hill and enter River Mountain Park (4468 River Mountain Road, Little Rock, AR).
7:00 a.m. Start Time: Regular Starters and Spectators
Runner and spectator parking will be provided at the Cantrell West Building located at 11300 Cantrell Road adjacent to the Trinity Assembly of God. Park in any marked spots in these two adjoining parking lots. Gather with the parking attendants west of the church and at the east and west sides of the office building. Access this parking lot from the entrance located on the north side of Cantrell Road/ HWY10 at the traffic light (the Shell station will be to the southeast and Mattress King to the northwest). Do not attempt to access this lot from River Mountain Road. There will be a barricade present to block that entrance to the church.
If you plan to take a cab to the start, please have it deliver you to the shuttle parking lot. Cabs will not be allowed down River Mountain Drive, after the Early Start.
Note that the last trolley to the starting line will leave at 6:15 a.m. The starting line will have tents, heaters, and ample bag drop for runners to stay warm after their arrival. You should not wait in your car to stay warm and risk missing the trolley and the start of the marathon.
The trolleys will run throughout the race. When you are ready to return to your car, board the trolley at the finish line.
The trolley will also shuttle spectators to and from the finish line from the parking lot for the duration of the race. Pass this on to your family and friends who plan to come to the finish line. Arkansas Trolley Company and 3 Bridges Marathon policies prohibit pets on the trolleys, except for service animals.
