Parking in Cleveland

You may park in any lot that is open to the public. For a full map of all parking locations in downtown Cleveland, please click here. Click on the red Parking & Transportation pin to get further information.

Guaranteed Parking Reservations

We have partnered with Parking Panda, the nationwide leader in online parking reservations, to allow visitors to purchase guaranteed parking near the race route. View real-time availability and pricing at many locations within easy walking distance to the race.

Once purchased, parking is 100% guaranteed even if the location otherwise fills up. Simply present your purchase confirmation at the selected location, and this serves as your payment with no additional payments or fees ever. Parking availability is very limited, so it is strongly recommended that you purchase your parking for the race day in advance.

NOTE: Be sure to check the hours of operation at your selected location before purchasing to ensure the location is open early enough to allow plenty of time to arrive on event morning.
