Free Parking

A major perk to Impact a Hero is the FREE parking!!! The parking lot is very close to the start and finish line, and best of all, you won’t pay a dime as long as you pick up your race packet in advance at one of our packet pickup locations OR print out a parking pass and bring it with you. Parking for the Impact a Hero 5K will be available in the “Yellow” lot, also called the “Main Street Lot.”  Be sure to arrive via Main street because traffic on Kirby will be highly restricted due to the race route.  Please use caution when arriving and follow the parking attendant instructions as we expect a very large turnout this year.  Please try to arrive as early as possible, or run the risk of being stuck in traffic and missing the events!

Once you have parked, please find your way to the registration area in the “Teal” lot, also known as the “Murworth” lot (at the intersection of Murworth and Kirby), or to the starting line at Kirby and Murworth for pre-race ceremonies and to greet our Heroes.

It’s as simple as this: Park for free in the yellow lot by using your parking pass, and walk a short distance toward the 50 yard line of the Reliant stadium where you’ll find the start line just outside on Kirby!  You’ll find everything related to Impact a Hero between “the bubble” and Reliant Stadium.
