At Cascade Fellowship Christian Reformed Church (start line) please drive around the back of the building to access the parking lot. The check in table will be at the front of the building near the start line.

At Thornapple Covenant Church (finish line) the Cascade Road entrance will be blocked off to vehicle traffic once the race begins. You can enter from either entrance to park before the race and will be asked to exit using Burton St after you finish. You are welcome to walk through the finish line area to access the sidewalk on Cascade Rd to get to Cascade Fellowship Christian Reformed Church for the start of the race or to return to your vehicle after the race. 

Photo Stations: Visit our photo stations to take your photo at the start and finish of the race. Share your photos using #Cascade6K

Bike and Scooter Parking: If your child is riding a bike or scooter on the course we will have parking available at the finish line. Please have them park their bike or scooter in the open spaces until you are ready to leave.
