At the Finish Line
FREE transportation from the portico of Lakeview Restaurant at Rumbling Bald Resort to Ingles Supermarket. The schedule of shuttle service by van or bus is at 5:35 PM, 5:40 PM and 6:15 PM. Please be aware that our vans can shuttle only a total of 27 people and the trip to Ingles can take anywhere from 25 to 30 minutes.
For those whose cars have been left at Ingles, vans will make one trip from Lakeview Restaurant to return to Ingles following the medal ceremony between 9:00-9:30 PM. The best alternative is to come with a friend or family member who can drop you off at Ingles before the race and take your car to the Resort where the race will finish on the beach.
